What is a Memorial?

A memorial is an enduring tribute to a person who has died. It provides tangible evidence of a life lived, and a sense of focus for the bereaved to remember and reflect.

A memorial plays an important role in the grieving process. It forms a link between the past, present and future, helping to unify families and generations.

Every cemetery managed by the Metropolitan Cemeteries Board offers a variety of memorial options. Memorials have been developed to ensure that there is a wide range of traditional and innovative memorial options to suitably commemorate a life.
