Minimum entry is 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.
