As a fitting tribute to someone special or even a beloved pet, their memory will always be present in these ornaments which offer a focal point for quiet reflection.
From the respectful to the playful, religious to secular, all tastes are catered for by a selection of garden memorial ornaments in different sizes and styles made from frost proof reconstituted stone or durable resin that has been expertly crafted.
Memorial pedestals can be decorated by an ornate planter filled with colourful summer flowers – perhaps your loved one's favourites - bird bath or perhaps a celestial or traditional sundial whose shadow slowly moves around the dial to appropriately represent the passage of time.
Many pedestals are designed to accommodate one or two urns which can be removed at any time should you wish to scatter the ashes. Some can be inscribed in different script styles while others have space for a perspex plaque that details a name and dates together with some additional wording.
These are all strikingly substantial garden features, many are available in various colours, for instance bathstone, terracotta or portland stone and they can be customised in a respectful way with embellishments such as a cross, angel or praying hands.
More discrete would be a memorial block which again can be inscribed with a life's brief details or just with 'In Loving Memory'. These blocks can be in different coloured stone and also act as a vase with flowers. Classically simple, these modest memorials are suitable to be located in respectful place in your garden or act as a grave memorial.
Religious and Secular Ornaments
Other ornaments reflect religious convictions, the Virgin Mary is particular popular with choices of various sizes and designs, the smooth alabaster white finish of a crushed marble Jesus that has been lovingly hand finished might be particularly suitable, or there are many angels in different poses.
There are numerous other subjects that might prove apposite including children playing and fairies with butterfly wings fluttering or at rest, you can be sure that they are all meticulously detailed and will provide charming memories.
One further memorial you might consider and one that has proved perennially popular would be a wooden bench. A wonderful place to relax at any time and very fine way to reflect on someone's life, the bench can be positioned in a public place or a garden either inscribed or fitted with a memorial plaque.
