What Are Lawn Memorials?
A lawn memorial or headstone is generally made out of stone or slate and is placed at the top of a grave in a cemetery. After some time from when the person was buried, the headstone becomes the main way of showing someone is buried here and who they were.
Generally, there is a bit of information that is written down on the gravestone. This usually consists of their name, life-dates and a small epitaph from the family.
Sometimes, whenever a child passes away, a mason creates the gravestone to commemorate what they were like, such as personalities and interests.
Memorial mansions are where the creation, installation and repairs for headstones are done.
Choosing your headstone Inscriptions
You need to keep in mind a few things when choosing the gravestone you wish for a loved one. But the first thing you must do is take your time to ensure you select the one you like. Ensuring you do not use too many words is important, so leave out the months if possible when on the life-dates when it is for an adult.
Also, when choosing the epitaph, make sure it sums it up about them. You could put a quote from a book or a poem you two liked or that you think fits them.
Lastly, choose a letterform that you like for the gravestone, but ensure it is known to last over time. This is what is important for a gravestone.
Other things need to be kept in mind, but these are the most important for now.
Personalised Lawn Memorials
Choosing a lawn memorial or gravestone is just one step; next, you will have the opportunity to customise this to your liking. The headstone's customisation includes the shape and size of the stone and the colour and finishes you would like it to have. Other things, like the style of writing, which will be used to engrave the information you want on the stone, will be chosen as well if you wish. Each gravestone is done to a high quality to ensure it can last as long as possible.
