What to write on a memorial plaque
To help you decide on an inscription for your loved, you can view the wording examples on each grave plaque displayed on our website. When you have decided on a verse you like, simply enter the wording when making your purchase and we’ll send you a plaque proof for your approval afterwards. Alternatively, you can enter your own personal inscriptions, poems, or verses, but please remember to keep your wording relatively short, as per our grave plaques displayed. The more words in your inscriptions, the smaller the font size becomes, making the writing a little more difficult to read. With this in mind, and no matter what wording you decide upon our design team will send you a preview of your inscriptions before engraving, making sure your you are happy with everything before engraving commences.
Ideas for Grave Plaque Wording
To begin with, each grave stone plaque is shown with inscriptions. In general, these grave plaque wording examples show the layout and style of the writing. As well as memorial verses a selection of headstone epitaphs and other grave plaque messages can also be engraved to our granite grave memorials. In a similar fashion, grave plaque wording examples such as life quotes and poems about death can each be personalised to our memorial plaques for graves. In particular, we advise personalizing our grave markers for outdoors with names for security purposes. To that end, personalised granite commemoration gifts with names and photos are important aspects to take into account before purchasing.

Made from Granite to last forever
As I have noted, our memorial plaques for graves are made from granite and come with a lifetime guarantee. In essence, granite is the toughest material for grave markers for outdoors. For one thing, granite has been proven to withstand severe weather conditions. And as a result, personalised granite remembrance gifts make outstanding ideas for cemetery plaques. What’s more, almost all our granite grave memorials come in four colours to help you match your existing gravestone. Not to mention, a variety of plaque designs are also available for your personalised graveside plaque. Together with wording and images engraved with weather-resistant paints your grave stone plaque is guaranteed to last.
Maintaining your ourdoor Grave Markers
By and large, polished granite memorials require little or no maintenance to keep them in prime condition. Because of their highly polished finish, the outdoor elements can easily be cleaned from a grave stone plaque. In order to clean our grave markers for outdoors, we recommend using some warm soapy water and a soft cloth to wash away any dirt. It must be remembered some household cleaners that contain chemicals that can stain certain granites. With this in mind, always use a mild soap when cleaning your personalised graveside plaque.
Unlike polished granite grave memorials, rustic granites will require annual maintenance to keep them clean. Because of their natural finish algae tends to gather on their surface. As a result, we recommend brushing the rustic area on our memorial plaques for graves using warm soapy water, at least once each year. Therefore keeping your rustic grave stone plaque clean and algae-free. It is equally important to remember that any areas containing inscriptions should only be lightly cleaned with a damp cloth, as brushing may remove their paint.
