Bronze memorial plaques

For a simple yet formal memorial, a bronze plaque may be an appropriate tribute. These plaques are sold on 15 year leases, renewable at the expiry date. We offer two sizes:

  • small plaque – 5” x 2 ½” (125mm x 60mm)
  • large plaque – 6” x 4” (150mm x 100mm)

These are available at Hutcliffe Wood Garden of Remembrance, City Road Cemetery and Burncross Cemetery columbarium. 

Book of Remembrance

The name of deceased and a personal inscription may be entered in the Book of Remembrance, which can be viewed once per year on a chosen date.

These are contained in Remembrance Rooms at City Road Cemetery and Hutcliffe Wood Garden of Remembrance.

Leather memorial panels

These dark blue leather panels are inscribed with gold leaf, bearing the name of deceased and chosen inscription. The panels are displayed within an oak frame and remain in place for 10 or 15 years.

These are available at City Road Cemetery and Hutcliffe Wood Garden of Remembrance.  

Memorial wall niches

These polished granite niches are large enough to accept two caskets of cremated remains. The plaque can be incorporated with a photograph of your loved one or an inscription. There is also a small bronze posy vase provided for floral tributes.

These are leased for 10 or 15 years, with the option of renewal, and are available at the Hutcliffe Wood Gardens of Remembrance.

Mushroom memorial plaques

These granite mushrooms are in the wooded area to the rear of the formal part of Hutcliffe Wood Gardens of Remembrance. Mushroom plaques are leased for 10 years, with the option of renewal. 

Vase block 

The vase blocks surround each tree and include a small posy vase for floral tributes. The granite tablet provides space for an inscription and can include a photograph.

These are leased for 10 years, with an option of renewal at the end of this period.
