Physical or permanent memorials in a cemetery or memorial garden have an important role to play in dealing with grief.

A permanent memorial can provide solace by providing a place that those in grief can visit and be with their thoughts and feelings for the person they are missing. It can be very helpful to have a place where you give yourself permission to express feelings of loss and sadness.

A permanent memorial also provides continuity with future generations and extended family.

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.
