About Taupo Monumental

About Us

Taupō Monumental creates customised memorial headstones and plaques.  Since opening its doors in 1979 the firm has earned respect for its perception and craft in the Taupo district as well as in the wider communities the business serves.

Specialists in memorial work, we offer a wide range of styles from traditional memorials and plaques to bespoke one-off creations. 

It can be an emotional and sensitive time, we understand this and with your loved ones in mind we work with you, to your budget to create the most fitting tribute.

Taupo, Mangakino, Turangi, Taihape, Waiouru, Tokoroa, Putaruru, Tirau, Taumarunui, Te Kuiti, Napier, Hastings, Reporoa and Rotorua.

We can also deliver and, using a network of trusted sister companies, install memorials throughout New Zealand and on request, to the Pacific Islands. Taupo Monumental

Our Stonemason, Nathan:

Nathan began working with memorials at 14, after school, weekends and holidays, before starting his apprenticeship at 16, learning traditional techniques such as hand chisel and lead lettering. Today, he’s one of only two in the Waikato district with this specialised skill.

At 19, and his apprenticeship complete, Nathan started Creative Stone in Hamilton. During this time he learned stained glass and sandblasting techniques and operated a decorative glass company.

Nathan moved to Taupō in 2014 and purchased Taupō Monumental in July 2015.
