Memorials & Headstones Inscriptions
Headstone inscriptions are arguably one of the most important elements of a gravestone. They are the message that will represent the life of your loved one and should be timeless and dignified. Inscriptions are almost always carved directly into the gravestone; however, sometimes they can be created on ceramic or zinc plaques and attached to the gravestone.
Longer versions provide much more information about who your loved one was and what they did during their lifetime.
If you’re having trouble coming up with the perfect words to represent your loved one’s life, there are many resources available to help you.
When it comes to headstone inscriptions, there are no set rules; however, it’s important to choose something that you feel comfortable with and that accurately represents your loved one’s life.
Common Headstone Inscriptions Phrases
These common phrases are short and can work very well either on their own or in conjunction with other, more personal epitaphs:
- In loving memory of…
- Forever in our thoughts
- Always remembered
- The lord is my shepherd
- Loved and missed by all the family
- Together again
Writing a poem about your loved one allows you to express your sorrow in a creative and dignified manner such as:
“Softly the leaves of memory fall, Gently I gather and treasure them all, Unseen, unheard you are always near, So missed so loved so very dear”
“You are always in my thoughts, Your love is still my guide, And though I cannot touch your hand, I know you are by my side”
“Our Happiness Together Are Memories Forever”
Bible Passage Inscriptions
If you would like to choose a bible passage, study the verse to ensure it has relevance to your loved one’s life and faith. Examples include:
I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever. – Psalm 23:6
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. – Matthew 5:8
Whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. – John 5:24
The Lord is near to all who call on him. – Psalm 145:18
He…has passed from death to life. – John 5:24
Ultimately, the material that is chosen for a headstone will depend on factors such as budget, durability, and aesthetic preferences. We will work with you to create a headstone that is unique and tailored to your specific needs.
Headstone Inscription Fonts
Headstone Inscriptions Fonts add character to a gravestone. The most popular option is a Roman font or one very similar. Highly stylised fonts such as Old English and elaborate ‘script’ like fonts may look good on paper but are often very unsuitable when cutting into stone.
