Granite Wall Plaques at Gornal Wood Crematorium

Gornal Wood Crematorium provides a lasting, commemorative tribute to loved ones at the Crematoria in the form of engraved granite memorial plaques. The memorial plaques of polished granite are fixed to walls adjacent to the chapel and the floral tribute area.

A choice of colours and size is offered and plaques for one of two inscriptions are available. Single plaques will accommodate three lines of inscription. A name line of up to 18 letters and subsequent lines of up to 24 letters or spaces.

Double plaques accommodate 6 or 7 lines of inscription (depending on shape). On double plaques, the additional inscription will be inscribed without further charge.

How long will the plaque remain on the wall?

The right to affix an inscribed granite plaque is for a lease period of 10 years during which they will be on display walls adjacent to the chapel and the floral tribute area.

At the end of the initial period, the lease can be renewed for a further ten years on payment of a further 10 year lease fee. If the option to renew is not taken up at the end of the ten year period the plaque will be removed and the space reallocated. Spaces for plaques can not be reserved in advance but, as stated above, plaques can be changed to incorporate other names.

If you do not wish to renew there is the option to buy back your memorial granite plaque. Please contact the office for further information on the fee relating to this.

If you are renewing your memorial, the required fee amount will be included in the correspondence from Bereavement Services.

How much does it cost?

The fees normally changes annually so for this year's fee please view the fee information.
