In any cemetery or churchyard, headstones are an important part of a grave. Many people opt for such a memorial to commemorate a person’s life and have a place where they can go to visit them. In graveyards, they offer an insight into the people who have been laid to rest. So, why opt for this type of memorial?

Finding Loved Ones

First and foremost, headstones are used grave markers and are useful for identifying who has been laid to rest. Not only is this useful for friends and family wanting to come and visit, but it also ensures that the grave doesn’t get forgotten decades later. Often cemeteries can be quite big places and when lifetimes pass, it could be difficult to identify a grave without a memorial.

Not only are headstones important for identifying graves, but they also help to commemorate a life. The inscriptions on the markers usually have messages that pay tribute to a loved one and their impact. At Griffith Memorials, we have a huge selection of memorials and offer inscriptions for the Bristol area.
