Gardens of Remembrance

 

The Gardens of Remembrance are a mixture of informal woodlands planted with memorial trees and shrubs where people can sit on seats dedicated to the memory of loved ones, a lawned area with memorial shrubs and trees as well as memorial kerbs, and finally a more formal area of memorial kerb plates and trees to mark the final resting place of the deceased.

 

There is also a Columbarium (which is where the cremated remains rest in vaults sealed with inscribed granite tablets) sited close to the main building. Parts of the grounds are managed as conservation areas thus encouraging wildlife and various wild flowers to flourish.

We also operate an informal volunteer memorial gardens group who assist the resident gardener in keeping the grounds to the high and exacting standard that families demand. To find out more information, please see our Volunteering Opportunities page.
