To recall the Skull bone I get a visual image of the story of Mr bones sitting in the waiting area watching telly while having a sneezing fit and trying to stop it by talking to his friend on his mobile phone. By going through the story step by step Mr Bones actions remind my of the skull bones. I start at the top of the skull - Frontal bone working down, across the left side, then from the back through the skull back to the front to the Lacrimal bone.
Mr Bones sneezed and snot fell down his front. He has a dose of his nasal spray. He gives himself maximum dose. Oh man! It made him dribble which highly annoyed him. His sneezing became automatic he hoped it would be temporary because his pair of eyes were streaming. Would ox-tail soup help if he sipped it all while watching Sven, the old reindeer in frozen, on the TV. He turn over to a programme on ethnic models. He gave his Pal a tinkle on the phone. They spoke about his nasal sneezing problem and how it could be conquered. His friend Homer said Mr bone's Lack of help made him cry.

To aid memorising you can add images to areas of the skull bones to help you recall the bone names. I try to keep it related to the story. However its not always easy for example Inferior nasal concha, I have used an image of a conker as this sounds similar to concha.
