Outdoor Memorial Plaques; Things to Know

Posted by on October 22, 2019 in Stuff with 0 Comments

After a cremation, the ashes of the deceased are deposited in a cinerary urn, to be then either scattered in the garden of the memory, or preserved in a columbarium. In all cases, the memory of the deceased will be preserved thanks to specific signage.

Respect for the Memory of the Disappeared in the Cinerary Sites

Cinerary Sites have two Complementary Roles for Relatives of People who have Chosen Cremation:

  • They allow families to organize the farewell ceremony, through dispersal or conservation of ashes.
  • They represent a powerful symbolic place, to gather and remember the missing.

One of the essential components to respect the memory of the deceased is the signage. These are all the elements on which will be their identity. This is composed of the given name (s), family name and maiden name for married women, date of birth and date of death. A religious sign is also allowed, if the person had expressed the wish.

The Signage of your Columbarium and Memorial Gardens

Once the cinerary urns are placed in the columbarium, it is closed to protect the ashes of the deceased. That is why the law provides for the identity of missing persons to be engraved on a plaque provided for that purpose. This plaque is affixed directly to the columbarium and helps to keep the memory of those who chose cremation.

Similarly, in the garden of remembrance where the ashes are scattered, the local community in charge of the management of the cemetery must provide signage elements, that is to say provide a marking device hosting the identity of the cemetery. Concerned persons: column, souvenir book or outdoor memorial plaques. As a manager, the municipality indicates to the families the rules of this sign: Provision of plates to be affixed to the marking device, size and style of the characters, etc.
