Did you have a special gravestone or plaque made for her?
We’ve got a lovely headstone and it’s got a little angel, sat like that, which is really nice, lovely words, beautiful words, and we’ve recently had a bird bath made with some lovely words on and put in the church grounds where my Mum used to go. So that’s nice.
How did you plan all that? Did, did somebody help you choose the stone, or the wording or the inscription?
The funeral director brought round some pictures so that you could look at like different headstones, different colours, and sizes and shapes and different types of stone, and also you can look at all the script to see which style of writing you like. And it’s quite hard actually because you want, you want it to be perfect and you want to choose exactly the right thing. But I quite enjoyed doing the words. I came up with the words, and you know cleared it with my sister and my dad to make sure they were happy, and yes.
So then do you ask the funeral director to organise that, or do you get in touch with the person that’s making it directly?
They do it. They gave, there’s a stone mason local, which is up the road, and they sort of liaise between themselves.
The funeral director does?
Yes, and the stone masons, but they’re very good.
