Memorials have been used for thousands of years, with evidence dating back to the Egyptian era. As you can imagine, over the years, there have been new and creative ways to remember our loved ones. In this blog post, we take you through some unique memorial ideas.
Also known as remembrance jewellery, memorial jewellery takes a small amount of the individual’s ashes or hair which is then sealed within the jewellery. They are commonly used in rings and pendant necklaces, but can be implemented into any design of your choice. Memorial jewellery is a lovely way to remember close ones and is popular for families and friends who want to keep their loved one close.
An online memorial can range from a one page document, through to a fully functioning website which commemorates a person’s life in entirety. An online memorial allows people from around the world to pay their respects and memories, including photos, messages and videos. It can also be revisited anywhere and any time, which is a great comfort to most.
Memorial Ornaments are another lovely way of remembering your loved ones. You can choose from a wide range of designs, from Christmas decorations to garden ornaments, with most being able to be personalised. A small amount of ashes and hair can be encapsulated into ornaments, which allows you to feel close to your loved one.
