When choosing a memorial for a child, it’s vital you have the support of a monumental mason who will be sensitive and sympathetic to your situation, and will be able to guide you through the process in a gentle manner. They should help you create the perfect memorial to commemorate a young life, which combines the finest craftsmanship, highest quality materials and most careful design.
There are many different options available for children’s memorials, including a variety shapes, sizes and designs that are intended specifically as children’s memorials. This means you could choose a teddy bear shape, a favourite character from a cartoon, a much-loved toy or a sport as the basis of the memorial design. Alternatively, if you have a specific shape or design in mind, you could find out about options for bespoke children’s memorials, in order to have a unique tribute. Further options that may be available for children’s memorials include the ability to choose blue or pink lettering as appropriate for the inscription.
Of course, your monumental mason will help you through the whole process, from picking a headstone and design, to choosing the writing and any inscription that will appear on the memorial, through to producing the children’s memorial and arranging for it to be erected in the burial ground.
