When you lose a loved one, it can be difficult to know how to memorialise them. There are many different types of cremation memorials that can be made, and the type you choose will depend on your budget, the amount of space you have, and your personal preferences.
One example of cremation memorials include a memorial plaque made. This is commonly a small, flat plaque that would have your loved one’s name, dates, and a meaningful message or quote. Plaques can be made from a variety of materials, including brass, bronze, or granite. Plaques can be hung on a wall or placed in a garden or cemetery.
Some families choose to have a memorial bench made. This would be a bench that would have your loved one’s name and dates carved into it. It would be a place for you and your family to go to remember and reflect on your loved one.
Another option is to have a more three-dimensional memorial created. This could be a statue or bust of your loved one, or even a relief carving of their likeness.
One of the most popular types of cremation memorials is an urn. Urns come in a variety of styles and can be made from different materials, such as wood, metal, or glass. You can choose an urn that is simple and understated, or one that is more ornate and decorative. Urns can be placed on a mantel, shelf, or table, or they can be buried in a cemetery.
If you are looking for a cremation memorial that will last for many years, you might consider a monument. Monuments are made from a variety of materials, including granite, marble, and bronze. They can be engraved with your loved one's name, dates, and a meaningful message or quote. Monuments can be placed in a cemetery or in your backyard.
