Mushroom

Many people find comfort in creating a memorial to a loved one following a burial or cremation. Memorials can provide a peaceful place to visit and remember those who have passed away.

These plaques are embedded into a range of free standing mushroom-shaped memorials with room for three, four or five circular dedication plaques, ideal for a family memorial, or individual plaques.

Design

  • Each circular plaque measures 4” in diameter
  • Made from granite with text inscribed in gilded or relief (lettering stands proud of the granite so it can be seen even when wet)
  • Images cannot be added to the plaques
  • Can accommodate a maximum of 5 lines:
  • Plaques with gilded lettering can accommodate up to 13 characters a line, except line 3 which can accommodate 17 characters
  • Plaques with relief lettering can accommodate up to 8 characters a line, except line 3 which can accommodate 12 characters
