Inscriptionions

The inscription is the personalized part of the headstone and the most thought needs to be applied to the wording and how it is presented. The front face of the headstone is the where the main inscription is to be carved, but your message is not limited to this location. We can carve lettering and designs in to the back and sides of the headstone as well as the base of the headstone.

Gravestone Inscription 

Gravestone inscriptions mostly include the name, date of birth and date of death. An epitaph, can be included of the headstone, and is commonly used on memorials in Llanelli. An epitaph is a written in memory of the deceased, containing a message that summarizes the life, beliefs and accomplishments of the deceased. An epitaph can be very short statement such as, “rest in peace”. A personalized epitaph should contain a message that reflects the person’s achievements, life and personality. Think about what they were proud of, how they live, who they loved taking inspiration from their favorite poems, songs and pastimes, making the epitaph personal and meaningful.

He left the world knowing he was loved
-
Nothing in life could be a more precious gift.
-
He always did the things he thought he couldn’t do. Thank you for your courage and inspiration
-
His true wealth was in his generous heart,
And what endless wealth he did have
-
It is not length of life, but depth of life. He jumped into life and never touched bottom
Not just today, but every day, we will remember
-
Though absent you are always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear
-
We miss her smile, her cheery way We miss the things she used to say, and when old times we often recall, it’s then we miss her most of all
-
It broke our hearts to lose you but you did not go alone for part of us went with you the day god called you home
-
Loving and kind in all his ways, upright and just to the end of his days, sincere and true in heart and mind, a beautiful memory he left behind
-
Gone is the face we loved so dear silent the voice we loved to hear
-
Gone are the days we used to share but in our hearts you’re always there
-
A lifetime together, a short while apart together once more and never to-part
-
Peace, perfect peace
-
The lord is my shepherd
-
A tiny flower lent, not given, to bud on earth and bloom in heaven
-
A bouquet of beautiful memories sprayed with a million tears wishing god could have spared you just for a few more years
-
His life a beautiful memory his absence a silent grief
-
Safe in the arms of Jesus
-
Loved and missed by all the family
-
Forever in the thoughts of your loving wife, children and grandchildren
-
To live in the hearts of those we love is not to die
-
Reunited
-
'Tis sad but true, i wonder why the best are always first to die
You are always in my thoughts,
Your love is still my guide,
And though I cannot touch your hand,
I know you are by my side
-
Too dearly loved to be forgotten
-
Life is not measured
By the number of breaths we take,
But by the moments
That take our breath away
-
Rest in peace
-
God found the path was growing over the hill too steep to climb, so he gently closed her eyelids, and whispered ‘peace be thine’
-
Sadly missed
-
A light is from our household gone, a voice we loved is still, a place is vacant in our home, that never can be filled
-
Yes, you’ve just walked on ahead of me don’t worry i’ll be fine but now and then i swear i feel your hand slip into mine
-
Happy, smiling, always content, loved and respected wherever she went, always so thoughtful, loving and kind, a beautiful memory she left behind
-
Together again
-
Ever thoughtful, faithful, kind and true, selfishness she never knew, her thoughts were for others to the last, we shall miss her sadly till our lives have passed
-
God gave a treasure for a while, to fill us with his love, and then he took our darling child, to dwell with him above.
-
A smile for all, a heart of gold, one of the best this world could hold, never selfish, always kind, a beautiful memory left behind
-
Good was his heart, his friendship true, loved and respected by all he knew; to a beautiful life came a sudden end; but he died as he lived, everyone's friend
-
A wonderful mum has gone to rest, for each and all she did her best; please god, forgive a silent tear, a silent wish that she was here
