Whether you want a simple lawn plaque or you’re looking for something more elaborate, such as a headstone or mausoleum memorial, we can help you choose the right option for your loved one.


Every option can be customised to reflect your loved one’s personality, likes or interests as well as with your personal message or information. There are plaques of varying sizes and shapes so we are confident you will find something worthy of the departed.

funeral plaque Options


We are here for you when you need us. You can feel free to stop by to see your funeral plaque and headstone options, either as part of your funeral arrangements, or at a later time once the business of planning and holding the funeral is over.


Many families like to take their time to ensure they are choosing a plaque reflective of their loved one to honour their memory. We will treat you with compassion and patience and will never try to rush you into a decision. You need to be happy with your choice and we will work with you until you find the plaque that speaks to you.



We’ll also help with all arrangements needed to set the funeral plaque in place once you have made your decision. We’ll work with burial sites and other professionals to ensure the plaque is set with precision and the highest level of care.

Feel free to give us a call any time and we’ll be here to answer your questions and offer support. You can also stop by and we’ll be happy to show you our selection of funeral plaques and other memorials such as headstones.

Respectable memorial plaques

A memorial plaque is a great way to remember a loved one and can honour both traditional and modern aesthetics.

A memorial plaque consists of a plate attached to a fixture and is intended to keep the memory of a loved one alive. This is done through personalised inscriptions that hold sentimental meaning.

If you’re looking for an alternative to a cremation memorial or headstone, a memorial plaque is a great option.

We provide high-quality memorial plaques tailored to your needs. Get in touch with us today and we will handle your requests with care and gentle considerations.

Customisable memorial plaques to honour your loved ones


Memorial plaques offer a degree of flexibility and allow you to honour your loved one in the best way. They are a viable option for cremation funerals, allowing you to inscribe a few words on an urn or cremation memorial.

Alternatively, you could choose to attach your memorial plaque to a bench with a short inscription. More recently, individuals have chosen to sponsor theatre seats if that’s something you think represents your loved one’s interests.

Did the departed love nature and the great outdoors? Consider planting a tree and include a plaque with a loving inscription.

You can also remember those who have passed through various other location-based memorial plaques, including:

  • Churches
  • Crematoria
  • Other places of rest
  • Gravestone/headstone
  • Memorial stone
  • Woodland burial site

To discuss these options further, be sure to contact us on (07) 4053 7499.

Memorial plaque designs

Memorial plaques come in different shapes and sizes which can represent your loved one in and of themselves. Some shapes to consider include:

  • A circle that symbolises nurture and protection, as well as the bridge between heaven and Earth for those of religious background.
  • An oval shape is practical for longer inscriptions and represents peace and harmony.
  • A rectangular memorial plaque allows you to add both image and text and can symbolise dependability, integrity, and comfort.

We understand the importance of representing the personalities of your loved ones through various means. That’s why Cairns Funeral Directors gives you plenty of material options so you can find meaning or symbolism in multiple places.

Some materials include:

  • Bronze
  • Brass
  • Stainless steel
  • Aluminium
