MEMORIALS

Physical, permanent memorials in a cemetery or memorial garden give families a place to visit and remember. They also have an important role to play in dealing with grief, by offering family and friends a place to be with their thoughts and feelings for the person they are missing. It can be very helpful to have a place where one has permission to express one's feelings. They can provide comfort on significant dates such as birthdays, anniversaries and public holidays. Memorials also provide a historical and genealogical record for your ancestry that helps future generations understand their heritage.

Planning ahead and preparing a place where you and your family can always be together can provide a sense of comfort and permanency. A memorial in a Memorial Park or Garden means the land has been set aside for the sole purpose of memorialising. So you can rest assured you and your family can be together forever. Planning and securing your memorial ahead of time also means you avoid inflation increases and lock in at today’s cost.

From a traditional wall niche or headstone, to elegant garden memorials, there are many options to tailor the memorial to reflect the individual or the family. Memorials can also reflect your cultural and religious identity. MyMemorial is a great place to see a wide range of options, and learn more.

Scattering Ashes

Scattering the ashes of a loved one has become very popular in Australia. Sometimes ashes are scattered at a family home, which can be resold, or scattered at a favourite place, which can be rezoned or developed into something else. A memorial can provide evidence of a family's connection to an area and a place for future generations to come and pay their respects to those that came before them.

Creating a memorial in a special place helps keep the memory alive beyond the funeral service. Memorials give families and friends a tangible source of comfort, and are an everlasting place to come and remember your loved one. In a memorial park, ashes can be placed without fear of the location changing.

HeavenAddress Online Memorials

As part of White Lady Funerals’ ongoing support to families, we provide you with a complimentary HeavenAddress online memorial page so that friends and family can share photos, music and tributes to your loved one, as well as offering words of comfort and condolences.

White Lady Funerals believes it can offer great comfort and a sense of belonging for families and community groups to join each other and share their memories and thoughts about a loved one. It can also be a way to rekindle friendships as people from all around the world are often affected when a loved one passes away.

HeavenAddress is a site dedicated to helping people come together in this way, to pay their respects and offer comfort and support to one another no matter where they are in world. HeavenAddress lets families create a truly personalised online memorial page. It is easy to use and can be updated whenever you like to keep the online memorial current. Families can also link to their memorial pages to community groups such as the Rotary Club and charity organisations.

Once a memorial page is set up, it becomes a lasting memorial of remembrance. It can remain online permanently so even future generations can view the memorial and leave their personal tributes and condolences.
