Can I have a personalised coffin?
Published 16/05/2022
During the pandemic, deaths were commonly being reported by the media as merely a number or a statistic, and it became almost too easy for them to forget that behind every number was an individual person with their own likes, dislikes, hobbies, and friends. A funeral can be a time when we remember the individual by playing their favourite music, sharing our favourite memories of them, or just looking over old pictures of their happiest times. Now there is even the option of having a personalised coffin that really shows off their personality, and we thought we would share a few of our favourites with you here.

10 Popular Verses for Memoriam Notices
Published 05/05/2022
It can sometimes be difficult to express your feelings when writing a memoriam notice for a loved one who has passed away. There are many verses and poems that can be used if you’re struggling to find the right words. Here are 10 popular verses that can be used in memoriam notices:
No one sees the broken heart That lies behind the smile, No one knows the loneliness That’s with us all the while. No matter how life changes, No matter what I do, A special place within my heart Is always there for you. Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am a diamond glint of snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awake in the morning hush, I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circling flight, I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand by my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die. In our hearts you will always stay, Loved and remembered every day. Your presence I miss, your memory I treasure, Loving you always, forgetting you never. Remembering you is easy, I do it every day, Missing you is a heartache that never goes away. Our hearts still ache with sadness, Secret tears still flow, What it meant to lose you No one will ever know. We think about you often, We talk about you still, You haven’t been forgotten, You know you never will. There’s a face that’s always with us, There’s a voice we long to hear, There’s a smile we always remember Of the one we loved so dear. I hold you close within my heart and there you will remain, To walk with me throughout my life until we meet again. If tears could build a stairway, And memories a lane, I’d walk right up to Heaven And bring you back again.
