About Mather & Ellis

Mather and Ellis Ltd is valued throughout the UK for its integrity and absolute commitment to quality. Renowned as a specialist contractor across the conservation, restoration and new build sector, we understand the importance of upholding the historic traditions of stonemasonry whilst taking advantage of leading edge technology. Founded in 1880, Mather & Ellis has built an unrivalled reputation for excellence and we maintain our skills heritage through a formal apprenticeship programme. It is this investment in quality and expertise that our clients have come to rely on and trust. Working exclusively with UK sourced quality sandstone and limestone, our capacity to source, detail, manufacture and fix means that we are able to work alongside our clients from the inception to conclusion.

At Mather & Ellis we have been cutting, carving and fixing stone since 1880, and are acknowledged experts in sandstone and limestone divisions of stonemasonry. We work with the natural beauty of stone to create imaginative and often complex design statements. Our ability to turn architects designs into beautifully crafted interior and exterior features makes us the first choice for the region’s leading architects.

We often undertake conservation projects as the main contractor, taking responsibility for other trades such as joinery, lime, plastering, roofing, lead works, glazing and decoration works. Our many examples of work provide ample testimony to the skills of our stonemasons, from major restoration work and listed buildings and churches to various projects including prestigious new builds.
