Tips for choosing a headstone inscription

Choosing a headstone inscription can be a source of great anxiety and stress for most of us, it can also be a source of comfort and joy when the right words are used.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind while choosing your inscription:

1.Take your time with the wording, no one should be rushed or be made to feel guilty about the time they take.

2. Try to avoid ‘In loving memory of’, it is over used and very much the standard format for a headstone inscription.

3.Avoid too many cluttering words. For example dates are usually best when only using the years.

4. Avoid lists of attributes, try to sum up the points in short sentences.

5. Be open to the design ideas that you are offered.
