In Memory – Cherishing those you have lost with a memorial | Platters Slate

Creating a slate memorial plaque for a loved on you have lost

Crafting memorial plaques in honour of a loved one can be a special and meaningful way to memorialise them for eternity.  That’s why we wanted to write this blog to help.

When creating a memorial plaque, there are several key factors to consider.

  • Firstly, the words you use should be both sincere and heartfelt; memorial plaques can take many forms, but it is what is written on the plaque that makes it truly an eternal memorial.  You could take inspiration from sympathy cards, messages or letters from those people that knew your loved one.  You can consider motifs to represent the past times that person liked and even consider the font in which your text is written.


  • Secondly, you should choose materials for your memorial plaque that represent the loved one – personalised hand-crafted slate memorial plaques can make for an especially meaningful remembrance of a departed one.  At Platters Slate we offer a range of engraving services; we therefore can offer paint infilled engraved slate using traditional masonry technqiues or laser etched engraving.  Both are ideal for indoor and outdoor use.



  • Finally, you should seek out inspiration from other memorials; family members or friends may have created something similar in the past or ideas may arise spontaneously while contemplating the fond memories of your lost loved one.  You can contact us to discuss your requirements where we can help with sizing, engraving options and functionality.
