After the funeral

Placing a memorial in Taunton for your loved one

Having a memorial plaque or a headstone placed in a cemetery can be an important part of the grieving process. It is a place for loved ones to visit and reflect, allowing you to feel close to them even after the funeral. Taunton Funeral Service can ensure that your family member or friend has a fitting and dignified marker in Taunton and Wiveliscombe.

Memorial and headstone options

There are many varieties of headstones and memorials to choose from, and these can offer the chance to reflect the life of your loved one. Whether you would prefer a traditional headstone, a memorial statue such as an angel, or something more alternative, Taunton Funeral Service can assist with arranging the ideal marker. We can also offer headstones with special symbols, such as logos, or photographs to help remember your loved one.

Things you may need to consider

When choosing a tribute for your loved one, there are several things you will need to take into account. Both Taunton Funeral Service and the stonemason can advise you on the best course of action based on your individual circumstances.

– The epitaph – this may be a favourite poem, a quote, or a passage from their book of worship 
– The type of stone – some cemeteries in Taunton may have restrictions on the type of stone your memorial can be made of 
– The area the headstone will be placed – exposed areas may weather softer types of stone 

The family run team at Taunton Funeral Service will help you with these considerations and more, ensuring your loved one has a lasting memorial that honours and respects their life.
