What is the Garden of Remembrance and what facilities are provided there?
The Garden of Remembrance can be found adjacent to the crematorium. This area is set aside for the dispersal of cremated remains. As this area is used continuously for this purpose, it will not be possible to mark or identify the exact location of individual cremated remains. The Garden is normally arranged to provide a focal point for visitors and includes memorial facilities.
Most crematoria have memorial facilities. The most common form of permanent memorial is the Book of Remembrance. The book is displayed in the small memorial chapel and the entries are available for viewing on the anniversary date. The Crematorium provides wall plaques which can be located in the Garden of Remembrance. These are purchased on a lease basis for 10 or 15 years.
The Funeral Director should be aware of the memorial options available but direct enquiries to the crematorium office on Tel. (01475) 715658 will ensure that full details are provided with a scale of charges.
