Memorials

Book of Remembrance

On display in the columbarium, our four volumes cover two six month periods, with each page dedicated to a single day. The skill of the calligraphers make this an attractive and lasting memorial.

The names of those cremated at Woodside Crematorium may be recorded in the Book of Remembrance, whether the ashes rest at Woodside or are removed elsewhere.

A page is set apart for each day of the year. The Book will be laid open daily for inspection at the page devoted to that particular date under the glass canopy designed to receive it.

Relatives and friends may have the names of those cremated entered. A single entry consists of two lines – one for the name and the day on which death occurred. Entries other than this should be confined to quotations from Holy Writ or of a classical nature. A double entry consisting of five lines may be made. Information regarding special entries, which may include an emblazoned heraldic device or a regimental crest or badge, may be obtained on application.

A floral tribute of freshly-cut flowers may be placed in the vases provided in the Room of Remembrance. The staff will remove the flowers once they have died. Please do not place any other items in the room.

Cloister Plaque

Measuring 10” X 4” these wall plaques are on display in our New Garden of Remembrance overlooking rose beds and lawns.

You also have the option to add a photograph to the cloister plaque.

No items may be placed on the cloister plaques. If desired, a floral tribute of fresh-cut flowers may be placed in the vases provided in the garden. The staff will remove flowers once they have died.  Please do not place any other items in the Garden.

Engraved Stone Tablet

This Room is situated to the left of the Chapel, and commemorative stone tableture with traditional gilded lettering is available for a ten year period.

The tablets measure 10” x 2” (single) and 10” x 4.5” (double). A single tablet will accommodate three lines of engraved text with each line having a capacity of approximately 24 letters. A double tablet will accommodate six lines of engraved text with each line having a capacity of approximately 24 letters. The double tablet can be used for those who would like to express their feelings with either a longer memorial, or to reserve space on the tablet for future use.

The cost of the lettering (up to 60 letters on a small tablet and 96 letters on a large tablet) is included in the price. Should you wish to exceed this number of letters there is an extra charge for each additional letter (up to a maximum of 72 letters on a small tablet and 144 letters on a large tablet)

After the ten year period has expired it is possible to retain the tablet for a further five years if required. The cost of retaining the tablet will be at the prevailing charges at the time.

No items may be placed on the tablets. If desired, a floral tribute of fresh-cut flowers may be placed in the vases provided in the Room of Remembrance. The staff will remove flowers once they have died.  Please do not place any other items in the room.
