We know that close relatives and friends derive comfort when they are allowed to commemorate their loved ones with a tangible memorial. Some people feel that a particular type of memorial would be appropriate and we therefore offer a choice of memorials.
Whilst we have attempted to provide quite detailed information on this website, please do not hesitate to contact the crematorium office if you require further guidance or advice on any of the commemorative schemes.
The Memorial trees are pre-planted within the Seasonal Gardens of the Crematorium.
The engraved plaque is available in either a silver colour with black writing or black with gold colour writing.
A small motif of a flower or tree can be chosen to complement the inscription.
Cast Bronze Memorial Wall Plaques are an established form of memorial displayed at Gornal Wood. Individual plaques are placed one above another and it is possible to purchase multiple plaques to form a linked inscription. They are fixed to walls in the flower room, chapel exit corridor and the Book of Remembrance room.
The beautiful book is made and inscribed by craftsmen and provides a permanent record. The Book of Remembrance book is displayed in the Remembrance hall, which is situated at the rear of the chapel. It contains a page for each day of the year and the inscription usually appears on the date of death, or any other anniversary.
Please use our online Particulars For Inscription In Book Of Remembrance form to have an entry put in the Book.
All of our memorials can be applied for and paid for using the online Application for a Memorial
Alternatively please contact the crematorium office to discuss the options available to you and your specific requirements.
