Memorialisation is the commemoration of the lives of those loved, revered and respected. The cemetery and crematorium offers a number of ways in which memorialisation can take place, including granite memorials, bronze kerb plaques, wooden benches, entries in the book of remembrance, miniature books, remembrance cards, jewelry and small personal memorials and also endowment scheme gifts.
All memorials are available whether or not cremated remains are laid to rest within our cemetery or crematorium grounds. Memorial products are subject to a lease agreement unless otherwise stated.
