The art of remembering!

Shared Memorials

The idea of one gravestone for
honoring and remembering many is a shared memorial.


  • Re-open a cemetery area once thought fully subscribed.

  • When a large above ground columbarium structure would be inappropriate.

  • To locate unused burial space, identify old paths once used for transporting caskets by horse and cart.

The concept of “Shared Space”

  • Multiple names inscribed on headstone sides with burial of cremated remains in the shared path.

  • Name engravings can occur in advance or follow a recent death.

Some of our projects

Mount Auburn Cemetery

A new shared memorial, a stone table at Mount Auburn, is awaiting names to be hand carved into the top surface with the cremated remains in the earth below.

At Wellesley
Congregational Church

We have recently designed and carved six shared memorial at the Wellesley Congregational Church. Names hand carved on both sides of historic looking slate. In a 250 year old cemetery, where they thought no additional burial space could be found, an unused carriage path is now a Memorial path. Cremated remains are methodically buried and names hand carved into slate stones that at a glance look as if they have been in the cemetery for centuries.
