How is an inscription or epitaph for a memorial chosen?

0

There are no set rules as to what the inscription on the memorial should be, however for memorials in churchyards it is suggested that the inscription is simple, dignified and reverent. The church does not like the use of slang or abbreviations. If an epitaph is desired the church may request that it has a biblical meaning, is taken from a hymn or reflects the life and work of the deceased.
