First think hard about what you might want
Only you can know what feels right. A memorial that stands for your memory of a person, what you feel about a person, or is like a gift to a person and is part of a place.
Look at the choices
Headstone. Cremation tablet or Wall plaque. Ledger (flat) stone. Garden memorial. Stone, wood, other material. Carving or ornament. Style of lettering. Words and dates or names and years. If no words suggest themselves a visual symbol may say more. At this stage even vague ideas are enough to work on.
