Where to start with your inscription

​​

In my experience, the inscription can be the most challenging part of the whole process, like beginning an essay, many of us sit, pen in hand without a clue where to start.

This section gives a little advice on how to create an inscription you can feel proud of.

First of all, it's important to remember there are no rules or laws, as long as the wording is respectful, you can design it however you want. We never charge per letter so go ahead and have as much or as little as you like

 

To make it easier, I always recommend you break the inscription down into three sections, each section has many options and can even be left out entirely.

Section 1:

Section one is the introduction; its usually quite short. for example; "In Loving Memory of" or "Cherished Memories of" or "With Love, We Remember."

Section 2:

This Section is the name and dates of the deceased. It can be written in several ways, it could include the date of birth and the date of death, either in full or just the year, it can be numerical or written in full, for example; 02/03/1986 ~ 12/07/2012 or2nd March 1986 ~ 12th July 2012 or 1986 ~ 2012.

Sometimes the dates are left out and are replaced with "Aged 86" or "Aged 86 Years".

Perhaps you would prefer to have both the dates and the age?

Section 3:

This final section is the sentiment. The sentiment is optional and can be anything from a short epitaph like "Forever Loved" or "Always Missed", it could also be longer like a poem or biblical statement, it could be a quote the deceased was known for saying for example "Cheap as Chips" or "God Bless".

It could also show a glimpse of his or her legacy, eg. "A Devoted Husband, Father, Grandfather & Great Grandfather" perhaps this could be placed before section 2 instead of afterwards? It's your choice.

Still Stuck? Please have a look below at some ideas or let us create an inscription for you.

Whatever you decide on will be placed into a proof for you before it's written in stone, that way you can see what you're getting and even make changes as many times as you like.

Is all that I have
And the life that I have
Is yours

 

The love that I have

Of the life that I have
Is yours and yours and yours

A rest I shall have
Yet death will be but a pause


For the peace of my years
In the long green grass
Will be yours and yours and yours

For everything exists and not 
one sigh nor smile nor tear, 
one hair nor particle
of dust, not one can pass away.

Out beyond ideas
of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.

I know I am deathless.
I know this orbit of mine
cannot be swept by a carpenter’s compass.
All goes outward and nothing collapses,
and to die is different
from what anyone supposed...and luckier.

 

~

How many times do I love thee, dear?
   Tell me how many thoughts there be
         In the atmosphere
         Of a new-fall’n year,
Whose white and sable hours appear
   The latest flake of Eternity:—
So many times do I love thee, dear.

 

~

You will hear thunder and remember me, 

And think: she wanted storms.
The rim of the sky will be
the colour of hard crimson,
And your heart, as it was then,
will be on fire.

 

~

Even the angels
Forget their services and about her fly
Oft peering on her face that seems more fair
The more they on it stare

 

~

While I remained at the bottom in dark shadow
others ascended to know the kiss of glory

 

~

Remember friend as you pass by 
As you are now so once was I
As I am now you will surely be 
Prepare thyself to follow me.

 

~

That best portion of a good man's life,
His little, nameless, unremembered acts
Of kindness and of love

 

~

Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The soul that rises with us, our life's star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar.

 

~
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory, do we come
From God, who is our home:
Heaven lies about us in our infancy

 

~

Time is too slow for those who wait,

too swift for those who fear,

too long for those who grieve,

too short for those who rejoice,

but for those who love, time is eternity

 

~

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

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul

Life's race well run,
Life's work well done,
Life's victory won,
Now cometh rest
