After locating the graves of our two babies, we needed to have plaques made for them. We chose to go to O’rourke Monuments. We met with Jim and the time he spent and the fantastic work he did for us was more than ever anticipated. Jim’s manner was compassionate and his workmanship and communication to us impeccable. Nothing was ever too much trouble. We now have the most beautiful plaques for our babies. We cannot recommend O’rourke Monuments highly enough. Thank you so much.

~ Jan Brown


Thank you very much Jim, We all are extremely happy with the beautiful monument you have made for my dear husband. The design, writing and etching are beautiful. 

I want to thank Jim also for his Great patience , even when he was busy. He always gave honest advice, was never pushing or rushing. This made the experience very comfortable, especially for such a difficult and very sad situation . I found Jim a very caring and compassionate person

We would highly recommend Jim to anyone for his Great Tradesmanship and Artistic designs. Again, thank you very very much Jim. It means so much to me that, with your help, the last resting place of my husband is so special and beautiful.

~ Jacquie De Ridder


I cannot praise Jim enough. His stone work is exemplary and he obviously takes such care and pride in his work. He has such compassion and understanding – he treated us as grieving relatives not just a number. I wholeheartedly and without restraint, recommend Jim to anyone. Thank you for your beautiful memorial to my late parents.

~ Liz


I had an unusual and unique request that no one could help me with, but Jim stepped up to the challenge and far exceeded my expectation of the finished product. He is a very caring person who made me feel completely at ease, not rushing or pushing which I sometimes found occurs when dealing with busy people. And at these awful moments when you do need a compassionate and understanding person, Jim was more like a friend than a business acquaintance.

I would thoroughly recommend him for his personal and friendly manner,he certainly took interest and pulled no stops in giving me a beautiful and fitting memorial. So if you are ever up at Gisborne cemetery take a look up the back in the old section for two story telling tablets that are testament to the workmanship of O’Rourkes Monuments.

Thank you so much Jim, I hope you’ve had a chance to see the tablets in situ. Thank you once again.

~ Nola Dunn


Our family would like to recommend O’Rourke Monuments for their high quality workmanship and excellent service. Jim was very helpful and caring. We now have a loving tribute to our loved family. Thanks from Debbie and family.

~ Debbie


Absolutely brilliant! I can honestly say that I have never before dealt with such a professional, compassionate, and outstanding craftsman such as Jim. 

The monument that Jim designed for our late father transcends far beyond anything that we could have imagined. Our requests were met with proficiency and superb quality. Jim took the time to ensure that our treasured memories and the lasting tribute to our late father was captured in an exceptional monument. 

I would highly recommend O’Rourke Monuments, Jim you truly are a gem! We can not thank you enough. From the La Sala family.

~ Cynthia La Sala


After the sudden passing of my mum, my family and I knew that there was a specific monument my mum wanted. The first headstone my wife and I saw was at the Keilor Cemetery was one of Jim’s. Judging by the quality of his workmanship and attention to detail we both knew that there was no need to look any further. 

Jim proved to be both caring and compassionate to our needs. Jim sourced the best white marble from Italy so that it would be both strong and maintenance free. Jim also went the extra mile and reinforced the monument so that it will never move due to the earth’s surface beneath it shifting. That gave us the most important thing of all ‘peace of mind’ in our time of grief. 

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Jim. Once again, thank you very much from the Kousparis family.

~ Harry Kousparis
