* Alluded to in ''[[Literature/ElementalMasters Phoenix and Ashes]]''. When Reggie Fenyx comes home on medical leave, he finds that his mother preserved his room as it was when he left for WorldWarI (though at least it got cleaned regularly). He muses that had he died in France, the room would have become his memorial.

* There's a religious and cultural phenomenom in UsefulNotes/{{Chile}} about the [[https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animita "animitas"]], which are little shrines dedicated to some deceased person who died in the street by diverse reasons (car accident, robbery victim, [[KillTheOnesYouLove passional crime]], etc) in where his/her family put an animita in the place he/she died as a kind of LonelyFuneral. Sometimes, the people pray some of them and then [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve some miracles happen]], there're few animitas in Chile that are venerated and are so famous as churchs because of this.

** The Classic Series plays with the preserved room version of this trope. In the Fifth Doctor story "Terminus", it is revealed that Adric's room on the TARDIS has been untouched since his death at the end of "Earthshock", indicatting that the Doctor has been unable to bring himself to jettison the room or at least put it to another use. However, when Tegan is asked to find sleeping quarters for new companion Vislor Turlough, she shows him to Adric's old room, suggesting that she is trying to remove painful reminders of Adric from the TARDIS.
