It can be extremely hard to choose a memorial for a child. Nevertheless, having a beautiful and fitting children’s memorial can be an extremely helpful way for a family to remember and commemorate a child.
In addition to having a personalised shape for a children’s memorial, such as a teddy bear, heart or even a cartoon character, a very important aspect of a children’s memorial is the inscription that it will bear. The inscription on a children’s memorial will honour the memory of a child and help bring peace to the family. When composing an inscription for a children’s memorial, you may wish to think about religious quotes or verses, poems, children’s books and even nursery rhymes to give you ideas for the most fitting words to say. Hopefully you will be able to find a quote, verse or poem that captures the essence of the child’s life, and will give you comfort in the years ahead. This is commonly known as an epitaph and you will them on many memorials, including children’s memorials.
Making decisions about any aspect of a children’s memorial is always going to be very difficult. However, a good monumental mason will be sensitive to these difficulties, and will guide you through the process in a gentle and sympathetic way, helping you to ensure that the finished children’s memorial is the perfect commemoration of a young life.
