  • A new product from Dearly Plaques & Memorials - Cremation Interment Lid

    Cremation Lid

    Something a little different... a lid!

    We delivered to the Eltham Cemetery last week a range of lids for cremation interments. They had a well loved 'home made' wooden lid that was over 10 years old, getting a little worn and needed something nicer as a replacement for their one old lid.

  • Media Release: New product from the Remembrance Candle Co.

    remembrance candleIt was the tragic death of his parents that left Mark Steel (Director) with the task of finding a suitable urn for their cremated ashes as requested in their will. After a search of available urn options it was decided to design an urn with both an aesthetic and symbolic appeal. “ We wanted to create a container that would blend in with the interior design of the home and which could also have the symbolic appearance of a candle, as the ritual of lighting a candle to pay tribute to a life ‘passed’ has now long been a part of our culture. Keeping a light burning in remembrance signifies that the memory still lives on and burns bright. It is a ritual that promotes warmth, reflection and signifies remembrance”.
