Our story begins with Henry Rotherham, founding master mason, in the early 20th century. Henry later passed the business on to Joseph Rotherham senior, who also inherited his father’s remarkable ability with stone and eye for detail.
Joseph Rotherham senior continued to learn and practise the traditional crafts of stone masonry until he went to serve with the Eighth Army Anti-Aircraft division in the Second World War. Returning from war he settled in East Yorkshire and built a reputation as a first class craftsman.
In 1973, Joe Rotherham junior joined him and together the father and son partnership began to expand the company that their father and grandfather started. J Rotherham’s technology base is now one of the largest and most advanced in the stone industry, adding efficiency and precision to our range.
As well as our leading ranges of British made stone fireplaces and kitchen worktops, we also produce beautiful hand-carved headstones and stone memorials, and another aspect of our masonry design service is architectural stone masonry; from decorative stone capitals for homes and gardens to marble statues for public and national spaces, our designer stonework can be found all over the UK and further afield.
Our skilled craftsmen work with an expansive range of materials that also includes limestone, granite, quartz, corian, silestone, wood and the finest Italian marble. We source our high quality materials directly from the raw producers from within the UK and across the globe, and with whom we have long-standing relationships stretching back over decades.
