A headstone or gravestone is primarily meant to mark the grave of the deceased. Thus, it should be clearly engraved with the departed individual’s name, date of birth, date of death, his or her achievements and accomplishment in life, etc.
In addition, you can personalize the memorial stone by getting a beautiful photo of the deceased laser etched on the stone.
In case you have cremated your loved one, you can place the cremation urn within the memorial stone having hollow space inside meant for this very purpose.
There are several online stores selling cremation urns in various shapes and sizes. Some such stores are urnshopper.com , www.urngarden.com , www.memorials.com , www.stardust-memorials.com , and so on.
To make the inscription verses more attractive, get the wordings engraved in charming fonts and styles along with meaningful symbols or artwork.
