Book of Remembrance

You can view the Book of Remembrance at the Crematorium.

The book is made up of several volumes and is hand-made throughout. Entries can include floral motifs, service or association badges or family crests and will be added in full colour.

The entries are recorded and displayed annually on the anniversary of the date of death or any other commemorative date or anniversary that you request. 

Two pages per book are available to each day of the year, and the book is displayed open at the corresponding day, in a glass case.

New book of remembrance

Many people wish to have a copy of the entry as it appears in the Book of Remembrance.

This can be provided either on a memorial card or in a miniature reproduction of the Book of Remembrance. Please e-mail [email protected] for prices.

Families and friends can bring cut flowers in memory of loved ones and place them in the memorial chapel.

Vases and fresh water can be found in the room opposite the memorial chapel.

Flowers may be taken from the chapel to decorate other rooms in the crematorium. After a reasonable time they will be removed by crematorium staff.

Please note that no glass vases or potted plants are allowed in the building.
