People move all through their lives. A memorial in a memorial park or garden offers a physical place to visit and remember a loved one. A place where memories can last.
Planning ahead and preparing a place where you and your family can always be together can provide a sense of comfort and permanency. A memorial in a Memorial Park or Garden means the land has been set aside for the sole purpose of memorialising. So you can rest assured you and your family can be together forever. Planning and securing your memorial ahead of time also means you avoid inflation increases and lock in at today’s cost.
This marker of a life lived in a permanent and secure setting means future generations are able to pay their respects and commemorate that life. They can provide comfort on significant dates such as birthdays, anniversaries and public holidays. Memorials also provide a historical and genealogical record for your ancestry that helps future generations understand their heritage.
From a traditional wall niche or headstone, to elegant garden memorials, there are many options to tailor the memorial to reflect the individual or the family. Memorials can also reflect your cultural and religious identity.
MyMemorial is a great place to see a wide range of options, and learn more.
Scattering the ashes of a loved one has become very popular in Australia. However, choosing the right location is important if you want a lasting memory in the future. Very often people choose to scatter ashes in a location that was special to their loved one, but over time such places may change or even be built upon, changing the location and with it the memory.
Today's parks and bushlands, however special to your loved one, may not be around in the long term. That beautiful quiet location could be redeveloped in a few years. You may not always be living in the same home, and you'd loose access to any memorial you may have created in your own garden if you move. Keeping ashes at home can also make other family members feel excluded or regret not having a special place to visit.
You can scatter part of the ashes in a special location of your choosing and lay the remainder to rest in a memorial, or even create a memorial without ashes to ensure there will always be a place for your loved one's memorial.
