The Book of Remembrance Room is situated in the foyer of the Crematorium. The pages are made from sheepskin parchment and are edge-gilded with 24 carat gold. The entries are carefully executed by highly skilled artists, and inscribed with the chosen wording hand-penned in black and red ink. The minimum entry is of two lines with the top line consisting of the name only. With entries of five or more lines, space is available to enhance the memorial by the inclusion of a miniature work of art, such as a floral emblem, animals and birds, badges of societies and organisations, regimental badges, crests and coats of arms.

  • There are pages for each day of the year.
  • Entries are normally entered under the date of death
  • The Book or Remembrance is in six-monthly volumes.
  • The volumes for January to June are present from January to June
  • The volumes for July to December are present from July to December
  • All volumes are at the Crematorium over the Christmas and New Year period.
  • The pages are turned daily to display the entries on their anniversaries.
  • Entries may be viewed on any day (not just the anniversary of the date of death) with the assistance of a member of staff, provided that the relevant volume is at the Crematorium.
Electronic Book of Remembrance

A touch screen version of the Book of Remembrance is also available. Any entry into the actual book will also be displayed here. Entries can be viewed for any date without the help of a member of staff.
