This is a list of monumental masons, also known as memorial masons:

A[edit]

B[edit]

C[edit]

  • Charles Calverley (sculptor), famed sculptor and monumental mason active in 19th-century New York
  • R. Chambers, English monumental mason active in mid-to-late-18th-century Kent.
  • Tom Church, Scottish, (Brechin, Scotland), presently active, designer of the Wallace Monument
  • Sir Frances Chantrey, English sculptor and monumental mason active in early-to-mid-19th-century England.
  • Sir Henry Cheere (1703 – 15 January 1781) was a renowned 18th-century English sculptor and monumental mason. He was “the first English-born sculptor to match the virtuosity of the continentals” and “formed his style on the small, crisp, cirvaceous shapes of the French sculptor [Roubiliac], though his monuments never approached Roubiliac’s in ease and inventiveness. Much of his work is unsigned, as is his commonly considered c.1760 masterpiece at Shadoxhurst, Kent.[24]
  • F. W. Commons, was a monumental mason, trained in Europe (there is some speculation this was from 1858-60), who was commissioned to carve four allegorical figures , each 12 ft high, for £2,100 to crown the front of Parliament House, Melbourne, though it never eventuated due to the depression. He set up as a monumental mason at Ballarat in 1880. He was then advertising from Creswick Road, 'blue stone, granite and marble masonry, engraving, carving and sculpture’ as well as 'City and Garden sculpture’. Much of his work can be seen in the historic buildings and gardens of Ballarat. A catalog of his work can be seen in F.W. Commons monuments, Libraries Australia ID 8859827.

"Yang Bin, 48, who earns roughly $150 a month chiseling tombstones at Zhenwu Shan cemetery, quietly criticized the excesses of “capitalists” who “are everywhere now.” “This is how the Chinese are,” he said, after trudging down the cemetery’s steep hill in his thin, black cloth shoes. “If they have money, they want to show off their face. If you don’t have money, you have to work.” "
