Headstones for Cremation: Honouring Loved Ones with Lasting Tributes

Headstones for Cremation: Honoring Loved Ones with Lasting Tributes

The choice between burial and cremation is deeply personal, and in recent years, many have opted for cremation as an alternative to traditional burial. When it comes to memorialising a loved one who has been cremated, the use of headstones designed specifically for cremation plots becomes essential. Hertfordshire Headstones is here to guide you through this unique and heartfelt journey. In this article, we explore the distinction between headstones for cremation and traditional burial, where to find these meaningful tributes, and our commitment to serving you throughout Hertfordshire, London, Kent, Surrey, and the South of England.


Headstones for Cremation vs. Traditional Burial Headstones

While the purpose of both cremation and burial headstones is to memorialize a loved one, there are significant differences between the two:

1. Size and Space:
Headstones for cremation are typically smaller and designed to fit in designated cremation plots or memorial gardens. Traditional burial headstones are more substantial and placed on larger grave sites.

2. Design and Inscriptions:
Cremation headstones often have simpler designs and inscriptions, given the limited space. Traditional burial headstones may include more elaborate artwork, engravings, and epitaphs.

3. Material and Durability:
Both types can be crafted from materials like granite, marble, or limestone. However, cremation headstones are generally smaller and lighter for easy placement.

4. Versatility:
Cremation headstones can be used in a variety of settings, including cremation gardens, cemeteries with cremation plots, or even in private gardens. Traditional burial headstones are limited to burial plots.

Words Matter

The words you choose to mark your loved one’s passing with are of great importance, something that is attested to by the amount of thought that goes into choosing them. It is therefore fitting to choose the most authentic method to engrave them with. V-carving produces intricate, highly detailed results and can be used to create both complex and simple designs to the best effect.


“I visited the cemetery this afternoon and was so happy to see the headstone in place. It is just beautful in it’s simplicity and everything I hoped we would be able to achieve for Mum. Thank you for making this whole daunting process so much easier than I envisaged and for your understanding and patience as I came backwards and forwards with little amendments! Mark has done wonderful work on the stone and the whole finished effect is perfect and ‘warm’, just what we hoped for”  Sally – Tring

We commissioned Hertfordshire Headstones to design our family gravestone. They completely understood what we were looking for and exceeded all our expectations with the design and their sensitive approach. We chose a Yorkshire Sandstone with a simple inscription and it’s just perfect. We are really happy with it. Highly recommended.
