Als Epitaph wird ein typischerweise in oder an einer Kirche angebrachtes Gedächtnismal für einen Verstorbenen bezeichnet. Epitaphe können künstlerisch aufwendig gestaltet sein und befinden sich im Unterschied zum Grabmal meist nicht an der Bestattungsstelle

An epitaph is a memorial typically placed in or on a church for a deceased person. Epitaphs can be artistically elaborate and, unlike tombs, are usually not located at the burial site

In some North German churches, there are very large ship models of historic sailing ships that were donated by the families of loved ones missing at sea, a very old tradition.
