Memorial Gardens

The Memorial Gardens are the more formal setting for memorials within the Crematorium Grounds.

Methods of placement of ashes in this area are solely in Memorial Wall Niches (page 6) and Ashes Vaults (page 7) providing options for above-ground placement of ashes only.

All memorials in this area are leased for a period of time and can be renewed towards the end of this time period or the memorials can be taken home for placement in a garden or other suitable area.

The walls include UK manufactured flower containers coated with a powder stainless steel running along the base of the walls. Each niche has space for two sets of ashes and the niche front plaque can be inscribed with the wording of your choice.
