Books of Remembrance are positioned in the Chapel of Remembrance
adjacent to the Garden of Rest. The Books are in four three-monthly
volumes, covered in gold-tooled calf black leather to an approved
design with a specially constructed binding mechanism.
Inscriptions are added by highly skilled craftsmen and the Book
will be open day-to-day at the appropriate page in order that the
entry may be seen on each anniversary of the date of death and at
other times by appointment.
Relatives and friends may have a memorial entry of two, five or
eight lines recorded in the Book upon request, at the standard
inscription charges. Memorial inscriptions to deceased parents may
be entered together on the page headed with the date of the wedding
anniversary if desired. Coats of Arms, Floral Emblems or Service
Badges, etc., may be incorporated alongside an inscription of five
or eight lines, and details will be given upon request.
The specimen page reproduced (in
miniature), gives guidance to the type of entry usually adopted.
(Further examples may be seen at the Crematorium Office).
A white memorial card holds one inscription. This can be
retained by family or forwarded to distance relatives. Specimens
can be viewed at the Crematorium office.
