Here we are very pleased to offer the service of making your Ancestral Coat of Arms.

We've access to a copy of Burke's 1847 'Encyclopedia of Heraldry', which lists all the Coats of Arms in England, Scotland & Ireland awarded up to that year, and we thought we'd put it to good use! 

If you live in a castle or stately home you'll already know what Coat of Arms are rightfully yours, but for most of us having a Coat of Arms is now just a bit of fun and an interesting talking point! So simply let us know the name you're looking for and we'll confirm whether Burke's book has an entry that may be relevant to you. If so, we'll then happily craft a Coat of Arms as detailed in Burke's book and finish it in the colours specified. 

We've provided some frequently asked questions below, but if your question isn't covered below please just get in touch via one of eBay's 'Contact Seller' links.

Surnames:   Sometimes there are more than one set of arms, (e.g. A 'Smith' from Cornwall may have had a different set of arms to a 'Smith' from Norfolk), and if that's the case we'll be in touch to see if you have a preference, and if not we'll plump for the one most commonly used by those with the same surnameAlso, the spellings of some surnames have changed a little So for example, if your surname is 'Foulsham' we'll be in touch to see if we can help determine if that might have been either "Foulchampe "or "Foulgeham of Lincolnshire"...and if you don't know, and you're happy to do so, we'll, again, go for the most commonly used one.

Some Coats of Arms also have a 'crest' over the helmet. This may be a family motto, or a shape such as a sword, ship or an animal. If you get in touch before making your purchase we'll let you know if your Arms also have a crest. If so, then you can decide if you'd like to use the drop-down selection to pay a bit extra to finish off your Arms with the additional crest. If you've already selected this option, but your Arms do not have a crest then we'll be in touch to see what you'd like.

Whereas the shield parts will always be faithfully coloured in line with Burke's 1847 book, the fancy surround can be varied. We
normally finish the surround in brightly coloured with silver and red or in classic shaded woodstains, depending on what option you have selected, but we are always happy to use any other colours you may prefer.


Standard size plaques are 21cm x 15.7cm (The shield part is 9.7cm x 8cm).
Large sized plaques are 27cm x 19.7cm (The shield part is 12cm x 10cm).

How are they made?:
Each set of arms is cut from a total of four carefully crafted layers, and each comes with an integral nail hole in the back for hanging onto a nail or screw. We use MDF for the detail of each shield as it gives a superior, finely detailed cut and plywoods for the surround.

What if my surname isn't in Burke's book?:
If you've already purchased a Coat of Arms we'll happily cancel the transaction and refund you your payment. This doesn't affect your eBay standing or feedback in any way whatsoever. Alternatively you can always design your own Coat of Arms and we'll be happy to make a truly unique, albeit unofficial, design just for you! :D

We currently offer two styles of Arms. This listing is for the style shown in the pictures

DESPATCH TIMES: Once we've agreed the Coat of Arms to be made, (i.e. in the event there are two or more variations) it will then take an average of 4 to 5 days to research, make and post your item.

POSTAGE: We do not make money from Postage & Packing!  To read more please see our P&P Page
