For thousands of years mankind has felt the need to use memorialisation to mark the sense of loss, love and respect felt for a family member or friend. It provides a focal point of affection and remembrance as a celebration of a much cherished individual life. It is a statement of not being forgotten and a personal message of undying love. It can help in the grieving process which we are all likely to go through at some point in our lives.
Some people may not want to return to the crematorium but still wish to have a fitting tribute to the memory of their loved one in the familiar surrounds of their own home and often where the memories of that person are felt the strongest.
View our beautiful range of memorials that offer something for everyone, once you have made your choice please call 01235 867821 or email us at Memoria@southoxfordmemorial.co.uk where one of our expert team will be able to offer advice and take your order.

The appeal of scattering ashes is to return to nature what nature created. There is something loving about the idea of scattering ashes over the ocean, on a golf course or even around the base of a favourite tree or shrub. The idea is to fulfil a final wish and complete a journey by scattering ashes in a favourite location.
However, cremated remains are toxic to plant life when the ashes are scattered or buried by themselves or in a biodegradable urn. The ashes will “clump” once in the ground and become a solid mass of salty rock, stressing or killing plant roots when they come into contact.
We have worked with experts to address this problem and developed a range of memorials designed for your home that combine cremated remains with a very rich in organic matter and microbial bacteria that are essential to healthy plant life. You chose the tree you want and we’ll arrange for it to be delivered to your home along with the perfect ratio of this unique, organic, PH neutralising compound to ensure the tree or shrub you plant in memory of your loved one has the very best possibility of flourishing into a healthy, fitting memorial to them.
