Books Of Remembrance

Books of Remembrance provide a permanent memorial to people who have been cremated here

The books are beautiful, with tooled dark red leather covers and high quality parchment pages. Each inscription is hand written by a calligrapher.

Entry details

Your entry can be between two and five lines, with 30 characters per line. The entry always begins with the surname and first names of the deceased. You can then choose the rest of the text.

An entry can be illustrated with a picture, such as a spray of flowers, coat of arms or regimental badge. This is called an illuminated entry. This can only be added to entries of three to five lines. 

Viewing the books of remembrance

You can view the books in the Chapel of Memory. They are placed open at the day’s date, so entries are on view every year on the anniversary. The Chapel is open for visitors 9am to 4pm daily.

Viewing at other times can also be arranged.
