About Caffrey's Monumental

Caffrey’s Monumental Works started in 1960 as a small local business that grew into one of the largest headstones, monuments and memorials companies in Ireland, through hard-work and innovation by entrepreneur Malachy Caffrey and his family.

Malachy started making headstones at the back of his mother’s house in Pierce Park, Drogheda, after an apprenticeship with P.H. Moss at Thomas Street. His reputation as a craftsman of quality memorials quickly spread and soon he needed to acquire more suitable premises at Bolton Street, where the company started to grow. Through the following years, the firm continued to expand with the arrival of experienced monuments’ craftsmen and the purchase of a site adjacent to the Bolton Street workshop. In the late 1970’s Caffrey’s Monumental Works bought a new site on Dyer Street andequipped it with specialist headstone and monuments machinery.

That step was so successful that the firm quickly found itself in the wholesale business supplying other craftsmen with the finished memorials and gravestones. By the late 1980’s Caffrey’s Monumental Works had grown into a major player nation-wide.

In 1999, the firm moved to the current Marsh Road factory and showroom (the biggest indoor headstones showroom in Ireland). The new facility provided space for further automation. The Marsh Road factory is the match of any memorials factory in Europe and the firm is fiercely proud of their achievements.
