Memorial boxes


Wasn't sure where to post this, sorry.
Does anyone know where I could buy a box made for gravesides?
I need something that I can put my son's pictures and letters In, which he makes for his grandad when we visit.
I can't find one anywhere online! I'd of thought this would of been a thing.

Or any ideas on how I can make one myself?

What about laminating the pictures and letters and little photo holders/pegs planted (maybe closer to the grave stone in the wintery months) ... like this:

Itd have to be airtight or the damp would get in.
We have a glass box for Eve but its a sealed unit and we got it made at a local glass centre, it would be ok if you were only wanting too add to it occassionally as you could get top taken off and resealed but no good for frequent use.
Laminated stuff does give way to the weather after a short while unfortunately

Thank you. The glass box is a lovely idea.

I'm so sorry you lost your beautiful Eve. I've just read your story and it's brought tears to my eyes and my heart.
I've read up on symptoms, so thank you for that information also.
Xx
