Adding colour to a child’s memorial

Children’s headstones are available in many shapes, styles and designs to reflect your special memories. They are often much more elaborate than memorials for adults and can be shaped like favourite cartoon characters, teddy bears and hearts, among other popular designs and symbols. Even simply-shaped grave markers may feature inscriptions to make them personal, or even to add colour to the piece.

Some headstones for children even feature kerb sets. The kerbs enclose the grave and indicate the boundaries of the plot. They add an extra flourish to the design and also protect the grave from people walking around the site. Clearly marking the plot out makes it less likely that people will step on it, helping to keep the site unspoilt.

There is an added benefit of kerbs that can also help to add more colour to the site. The enclosed space between them can be covered with colourful chippings and infill. The materials are available in a range of colours, from natural shades of granite to white marble as well as blues, greens and purples. You can choose the child’s favourite colour or opt for a shade with a special meaning. White is a popular choice for a child’s gravesite because it symbolises innocence.
