Choosing the Right Memorial
By Tom Sangers

When it comes to choosing a memorial for a loved one, it will probably come at a time when you are mourning for the deceased and can find it a struggle to make clear decisions. If you are lucky and the deceased had planned his/her funeral before departure then you may find they have already picked a memorial that they are happy with. If not, then it is important that you take your time to consider the options as a memorial should reflect the people they commemorate as closely as possible.

Memorials have been around way before any of us living on earth have and with that comes a vast history and heritage. Some companies have a long standing in the industry and manufacture their memorial headstones and gravestones using traditional methods employing expert craftsmen and skilled artists. However, like any other industry, the funeral industry has companies that will offer imitation or cheap memorials which will not only look unauthentic when placed in the crematoria, cemetery or churchyard but won't stand the test of time either. It is important not to fall prey to these companies and ensure that you do your research on the best materials used for gravestones, best manufacturing processes, life expectancy of the headstones and length of time the company has been operating.

When it comes to choosing the right memorial, you can get all the quality and craftsmanship required at a reasonable price so don't be put off at the first hurdle. The hardest choice is often choosing which material to go for. It is best to opt for either marble or granite as the material of choice. Granite can be quarried from a variety of countries and will vary greatly in colour and price. It is generally more expensive than marble as it is more difficult to shape and cut. The hardness of the material does ensure that it is almost maintenance free which will always be reassuring. Marble is classically white to blue-white in colour and is veined with darker blue/grey markings. One of the main advantages of marble is that it can be shaped and carved by hand to produce more intricate designs if this is something you think would fit the deceased, although granite can also be shaped too. It is worth getting a sample of each material and deciding what sort of shape you would like the memorial to take as this may dictate whether it is granite or marble you use.
