Many bereaved people draw great comfort from having a memorial to their loved one. A memorial can act as a focus for their grief and a place to visit and remember someone who has passed away.

When choosing a memorial it is important that you have time to reflect on the options available and understand the different regulations that may affect your choice.

Some of the options you may need to think about include:

  • Material
  • Shape
  • Colour
  • Colour and style of lettering
  • Wording for inscription

If you would like further help and advice about memorials, please contact your local Dignity funeral director.
