Memorial benches and wall plaques

It is possible to purchase a memorial bench to celebrate and commemorate a friend or family member for placing within a Cemetery, the Crematorium Memorial Garden or in one of our parks and open spaces, where space is available.

Purchasing a memorial bench

The Council will supply and install memorial benches in parks, countryside areas and cemeteries in response to requests and on receipt of the appropriate payment.  The Council has produced policies which explain the approaches taken in icon parks and open spaces [332Kb] and in icon cemeteries and memorial gardens [184Kb].  Purchase of a memorial bench covers the life period of the bench only, after this time the bench may be removed.  Locations for benches can be requested and the nearest available and appropriate site for your bench will be offered to you.  You can specify your memorial message at time of enquiring so that your plaque can be inscribed and fixed to your bench for you.
