Inscriptions in Birkenhead will need to be decided on after selecting the headstone. The inscription can be regarded as the most important part of the headstone, yet it’s possibly the most difficult part to finalise. Selecting the right message can be challenging as it should be short, and yet dignified while summarising the life lived. Having the inscription engraved onto the headstone is the most common way of representing the message. If you need advice or suggestions on the best way to include an inscription, speak to us.
Once you have an idea of what you would like the message to contain, you will need to decide on the other factors that play a role in the representation of your wording. In Birkenhead, inscriptions require a choice of font. The most popular font that is used for an inscription is more traditional Roman, old English, or a script-like font. While seemingly a small decision, it should be remembered that the font can impact the entire design. We can advise you on the best type of font for the headstone you have chosen. Some fonts require a deeper cut than others, and it is possible that they may not be as clear when inscribed into certain materials. The epitaph containing your message is the part of the headstone that people will remember most. Perhaps you would like to include a verse from a religious text, verses of poetry or memorable quotes. The epitaph needs to be meaningful and personal, representative of the deceased.
