Residents having to choose headstone inscriptions in Prescot frequently come to us looking for advice. T. Lyon & Sons has been in the business of shepherding grieving family members through the process of designing memorial stones since 1929. In that time we have gained the experience to help with this sensitive question. There are many phrases that can be inscribed on a memorial, we know that none of them will come close to erasing the pain felt by our customers, but we do hope we can help pick words that will give comfort for years to come.
When consulting with our customers in Prescot, headstone inscriptions are very personal. With this in mind we like to hear about the life that is being memorialized. This helps us find the perfect words for a headstone. If the deceased was a very traditional person we may suggest a simple “In Loving Memory Of” or possibly “In Remembrance Of”. Many of our customers take comfort in their faith in a time of loss, for them we may suggest a passage from the bible such as “Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God.”
Occupationally our clients want to remember the lighter moments when they visit the grave of a loved one. One recent customer was choosing a memorial for her husband who was a life long jokester. We settled on the following inscription “Life is a jest, and all things show it- I thought so once and now I know it!” In the end, anyone choosing headstone inscriptions in Prescot has a very personal decision to make. Our goal at T. Lyon & Son is to help in any way we can. For more information please call 0151 426 6125 or visit our website.
