Quality Memorials in Glasgow

Charles Lipton memorials is a family-run business with over 50 years of experience in providing our customers with bespoke markers and memorials in Glasgow. 

50 Years of Experience

At Scottish Granite Memorials, we are a family-run business with over 50 years of experience in providing our customers with bespoke markers and memorials in Glasgow. In 1927 Philip Lipton opened a grocers in Bridgeton on London Road, Glasgow selling fruit and flowers, with small memorials in the window.The memorial side expanded, then Gerald his son started a firm on the southside of Glasgow, concentrating only on stones, markers, bibles, vases and adding inscriptions for the whole of Scotland.

Gerald retired in 1997 prior to which his son, Charles had joined the business and set up the premises in Bishopbriggs. After Gerald retired the business premises on the southside of Glasgow were sold, and are no longer part of the Lipton family business although they still carry the name. Gerald sadly pssed away in 2005.

Charles will during 2020 celebrate 45 years in the trade making a total 88 years experience of the Lipton family in the monumental business.

Charitable Work

We believe that helping others is the very essence of community and we work to assist others both locally and internationally.

We have worked with a range of charities including Marie Curie, St Margaret’s Hospice, Diabetes Scotland, Parkinsons UK, Poppy Scotland, and as an ambassador for the Bumble Bee charity to aid babies without a stone.

We have also concluded an agreement with the US government to provide stones for soldiers in unmarked graves in Scotland. It is a great honour to be involved and already the US Army and Navy have had the first of these monuments installed by us. You can watch the ceremony in the video on this page.
