The passing away of a child is, it perhaps goes without any need to say, one of the most traumatic and upsetting experiences which families and communities can go through. Despite all of the goodwill, compassion and support offered at such times, ultimately it feels like little can be done to help the bereaved. With this in mind it is all the more important to ensure that a long term form of remembrance is in place to serve and to help the family in the years ahead.
We know that the above sentiment is something which places even more pressure on the considerable burden of selecting a headstone to be placed at the burial site of a child. Finding the words for an inscription can be a tough and emotionally draining task in itself, with the pressure being added to through the need to select the form and style of the headstone. Our team will do all that they can to help you with a selection, with our memorial masons ensuring that the preferred design is made to perfection.
A key concern many have in selecting childrens headstones is meeting the sense of the memorial reflecting both the joys of the youthful life lived and the dignified compassion with which that life has now regrettably been laid to eternal rest. We know that it would be very unfair to expect one of the bereaved to suggest a design which expresses both of these qualities at such a traumatic time. To assist we have an extensive range of existing designs, with each one being possible to adapt and alter to reflect your specific wishes.
Our memorial masons create headstones which reflect, with dignity, the beauty of a life so young and the love which was felt for them. It is our hope that our work for you will, over the years, be something which brings comfort, care and a positive sense of remembrance to you and the bereaved.
