Traditional memorials

Whether you are lying your loved one to rest in a cemetery (definition - land this is specifically designated as a burial ground) or graveyard, (which primarily refers to a burial ground within a churchyard) headstones, gravestones and plaques are the traditional memorial methods.

Looking for something special and unique to honour your loved one?

  • Another option is erecting a park bench and plaque - you will require permission from your local council should you choose this memorial.
  • Honouring someone with a song or poem - this memorial can be with you at all times, and could be read at the service.
  • Create a scrapbook or special keepsake box, will items from your loved one.
  • Plant a tree - you may need to gain permission from your local council.
  • A donation to a charity - in turn, the charity may make special mention of your loved one, either in their publications or website.
  • Name a star after your loved one.
  • Custom jewellery - often family members will have their loved one’s jewellery re-crafted into pieces which can be worn in memoriam every day.

We also offer memorials for your much-loved pet: After all, our pets are a big part of our family and life and paying tribute to them and the impact they have in our lives is common for an owner to do.
