Well-designed lettering on headstones in Leasowe can be the perfect touch to the final resting place of your dearly departed. As the tombstone or headstone is the final marker of a life once cherished, it is a sign of respect and remembrance to have it expertly designed and engraved. The material, shape and size of the headstone can be chosen to reflect and honour the deceased, and styled by experts to be a durable and attractive memorial. The engraving on the stone, however, is the part that really pays tribute to the deceased. The choice of wording as well as its design is what one should give thought to when commissioning a headstone.
At Birkenhead Monumental we can assist with this. In Leasowe, lettering on headstones is one of our specialities, as are all our headstone engraving services. The first thing to consider is what you would like to have engraved on the headstone. The standard information of course; the name of the deceased and the years when they were born and passed away. Most people choose to add their relationship roles, a description of their most endearing quality, and sometimes the cause of death. Larger headstones have enough space to also include a favourite biblical verse, song lyric, quote or parting thought. This is of course up to the individual client, although we have a number of appropriate verses and phrases that may be just what you are looking for if you struggle to come up with one yourself. The next stage is to decide on the style of the words. The font and lettering style can vary greatly, from traditional Roman block script to more elegant and fluid cursive strokes. We have a range of fonts to select from, but you are also welcome to bring your own designs that we can work with.
When choosing between lettering on headstones in Leasowe, we will be respectful and supportive, as we know that this could be a difficult time for you. Once you have found the winning combination of font and wording, we will expertly engrave it in the headstone material of your choice.
