Remember Me This Way - The Significance Of Gravestone Inscriptions

UK Memorial Service are committed to ensuring clear and perfect inscriptions are placed on the gravestones they create Press Release, 05, August 2015 - The overwhelming majority of people in the UK were saddened to learn of the passing of popular entertainer Cilla Black. Whereas some might suggest that at 72 she had enjoyed a wonderful, rich life, for many she was an ever present in their lives, with her fame coming from her musical career and her celebrated work as a television presenter. Although for many she was equally remembered for both of these, Ms Black made it clear which of the two she had a preference for being associated with. In an interview she gave a few years ago, she said "On my gravestone, I want Here lies the singer, not Here lies the TV presenter.”. These words, as ominous as they may feel now, serve as a reminder to all of the importance people place on the inscription which appears on memorials for them.

At UK Memorial Service, the team of dedicated, compassionate professionals have always understood and respected the importance of gravestone inscriptions. They express terms - in a limited number of words or in a short phrase - that embody both how much the deceased was loved and appreciated, as well as reflecting the way that those who have passed away wished to be remembered. Whilst it is perhaps best left to the friends and relatives of the deceased to confirm the words that will be used, it is essential to ensure a fully qualified professional carries out the engraving of the inscription.

It has always been the approach of UK Memorial Service to hire only the finest, most gifted and most sought after masons and artisans to work on headstones and memorials. This has ensured that the company as made attention to detail a priority, and made possible the delivery and installation of perfect, enduring gravestones at burial sites.
