The choice of cremation is a personal decision that has become more popular with each passing year. When cremation is chosen, many believe that memorialization is not necessary. However, grief experts and a multitude of studies have shown the importance of establishing a permanent memorial regardless of the chosen method of disposition. Psychologists agree that those left behind after the loss of a loved one or close friend need a place to visit, reflect and remember. Cremation memorials service those needs.
Traditional cremation memorials can be as simple as a plaque on the face of a cemetery niche, a flat granite or bronze marker installed on the cemetery grounds or even placing the cremated remains inside the configuration of a cemetery memorial. Non-traditional cremation memorials are functional structures not necessarily set in the cemetery. These may be a granite pillar or lantern erected at home in the family garden, a granite bench installed at a favorite golf course, or even in the form of a rustic boulder installed on a hiking trail in the park or by a river or lake.
Unique cremation memorials, whether traditional or non-traditional, can perpetuate cherished memories and fulfill all of our desires to remember the individual loss of life.
