Choose from 10 different poems (see poem choices below).

Why choose engraving?
Engraving your memorial helps to permanently identify the urn. Personalization helps make the memorial for your loved one personal and unique. Some cemetaries can require direct engraving for identifcation purposes. In the incident of being misplaced or lost the engraving can help return the memorial back to it's proper location.

How long will engraving take?
Our engraving is done extremely fast by our skilled engravers. If a ground order is placed before 12:00pm Central Standard Time the urn is generally engraved and shipped the same business day. For expedited or rush orders we make every effort possible to ship same day even after 12:00pm. We encourage calling our customer care line at 1-800-979-8767 if rush engraving is needed after 12:00pm so we can make special arrangements for you.

Poem Engraving on Back of Urn

Losing You
Our hearts still ache in sadness,
And secret tears still flow,
What it meant to lose you,
No one will ever know

Never Forget
Your presence we miss
Your memories we treasure
Loving you always
Forgetting you never

Butterflies to Heaven
If butterflies could fly to Heaven
they would bring my love to you
and yours right back to me

Forever in My Heart
Gone, yet not forgotten
Although we are apart
Your spirit lives within me
Forever in my heart

When Someone You Love
When someone you love
becomes a memory,
the memory becomes a treasure

No Farewell Words
No farewell words were spoken,
no time to say goodbye, you were
gone before we knew it,
and only God knows why

Those We Have Held
Those we have held
in our arms for a little while,
we hold in our hearts forever

Perhaps the Stars
Perhaps the stars in the sky,
are loved ones letting us know they are near,
by guiding us through the night

If Love Could Have Saved You
If love could have
saved you, you would
have lived forever

If Tears Could Build a Stairway
If tears could build a stairway
and memories a lane
I would walk right up to Heaven
and bring you home again

Antique Journals Book Urn

Reviewed By: Melinda - VA on 06/19/2012

I ordered this as my father was an avid reader. I had it shipped directly to the funeral home which was in MD. I didn't get to actually see it until the day of the service and I will tell you, the picture doesn't even do it justice! It was absolutely stunning and more than what I expected! The engraving was beautiful! It was PERFECT! Almost everyone at the service commented on how perfect it was for my dad and how beautiful it was! Even the funeral home director was impressed by it and asked where I got it!

I knew that I wanted my husbands urn to be a book since reading was his favorite pastime. No one locally had an urn in book form. This urn is stunning and just what I wanted. You sent it to the crematorium quickly. Could not have been easier during this difficult time. Thank you Perfect Memorials!

I ordered this for my mother who was a Librarian.
It was exactly as it appeared, the engraving turned out nicely. The funeral home had not seen one like it and was very impressed. I would recommend it.

I was determined to pick a special urn for my recently deceased husband, we looked at many sites and decided on the Antique Journals book urn because it was just him. the engraving was done perfectly and it was shipped in the two days I required. The picture does not do it justice. The support people were helpful and answered all my questions even after we had purchased the urn. I would recommend Perfect Memorials to anyone who asks. Even our funeral home wanted to know where I purchased it.

I ordered this for my husband who was an avid book worm. The journals are beautifully detailed and look like real books. I am very happy with all my purchases from Perfect Memorials. Everything is good quality and just as represented in the pictures.

The photo does not do this urn justice. It is beautiful and perfect for my daughter who loved to read. I was concerned with the material is not brass but once it was delivered, I no longer had concern. Customer service was great, they offered for me to purchase without engraving so I can inspect the look and material before actually engraving. They do everything they can to help us during our most difficult time. Thank you

antique journals book urn

Reviewed By: Ronald Townsend on 10/22/2014

The idea is great. My wife was an avid reader until her illness took that pleasure away. We were having trouble picking an urn until our granddaughter found this on your site. Then your service came into play. Within a few hours of finding the urn on your site, I selected what I wanted engraved, received verification and then an e-mail informing me the urn had been shipped. It was received in perfect condition and looks exactly as shown on your site. Two days after ordering, my wife's ashes were transferred to the urn and I took her home. I feel better looking at the books as opposed to a traditional urn. With the new cremation memorials having glass fronts to view the urn, the books will really stand out when the time comes. Thanks for the great product and service.
