Stone Memorial Ornaments Reviewed

Stone garden memorials finished in bathstone or portland, are an alternative to traditional grave stones and markers. With a stone or perspex plaque inscribed with a name and dates, they can also incorporate the ashes of a loved one or faithful friend. Other decorative items can be added, including flowers and a photograph.

Memorial Bird Bath

A large circular Memorial Bird Bath with a pretty decorated rim stands on top of a pedestal with attractive moulding on the top and base. This is a very tasteful way to remember someone special, with birds bathing and drinking the memorial will be a constant source of movement and interest. The image show this product.

Celestial Sundial 

On this memorial a Celestrial Sundial takes the place of the bird bath. The sun dial is a beautifully crafted piece, entirely appropriate to use as memorial, reflecting that even though you are remembering someone you loved, time stops for no one.  

Memorial Sundial 

The Memorial Classical Sundial, that's placed on an impressive pedestal, is handsomely crafted using Roman numerals. The memorial's classic proportions and high quality workmanship are a perfect last resting place for a special person or well loved pet, with the details of their life inscribed for all to see.

Memorial Planter

This Planter, perhaps containing your loved one's favourite plants or flowers, can be the ideal memorial, a permanent reminder of their life that lives on. The stone Memorial Planter is beautifully formed with a prominent overhanging rim, gadrooning and other decoration. 

Memorial Water Feature

This stone Water Feature Memorial certainly catches the eye and will engage people with its stylish design. Used in conjunction with a memorial pedestal, something special is created with the water's sheen sparkling in the sunshine against smooth cast stone.

Memorial Block (Rope)

A very discreet and traditional Memorial Block decorated with rope moulding along the edges and around a flower container. The gold effect vase contrasts wonderfully well with the stone that is also available in terracotta, and will look lovely when filled with colourful flowers.
