Inscription Layout

This is an example of how an inscription might be constructed – but it is entirely up to you to decide the format. (Providing the cemetery office or parish council or church diocese are happy with the content)

  1. Consider where best any design or photo plaque will go
  2. Opening line, others include “Treasured memories of…”, “Cherished memoris of…” or, “Sacred to the memory of…”
  3. Deceased’s name
  4. Relevant dates
  5. Who the deceased was, alternatively use the actual titles used in life ie Dad, Grandad etc.
  6. Final comment
  7. Alternatively use the actual titles used in life ie Mum, Nan, Nanny etc.
  8. This area too can be engraved it is usually 3″ high
