Book of Remembrance

Historically, books have always been used as a medium for storing information. The inscriptions contained within the pages of the Book of Remembrance can be viewed for many years by future generations.

Each volume of the book contains entries for three months and is open on the corresponding day.

 

 

Why have an entry in the Book?

By choosing to have an entry inscribed in the Book, the individual is not only having a memorial that is permanent, but is remembering their loved one in a personal and unique way.

This personal touch is achieved by the individual being able to choose exactly how they want their entry to look. All of the following can be determined by the individual when placing an entry: the inscription; the colour of ink used for the capital letters in the inscription (either blue or red); the date the entry is to appear in the book (this doesn’t have to be the date of death but instead could be a birth date, or an anniversary); and an emblem or other artwork that may be special to the family.

Applying for the entry

To apply for an entry into the Book of Remembrance please download and carefully complete the application form available below.

 

  • Your completed form must be posted to us along with a cheque for the full amount.
  • When completing the inscription for the entry, a minimum of two lines must be applied for.
  • The date for the entry and the preferred colour ink must be stated – anything else relating to the inscription such as an emblem or other artwork, is optional.
  • There are fixed deadlines for receiving applications each quarter, and applications must be received within the timescale in order for them to appear in the Book for the forthcoming year.

 

In addition to the inscription appearing in the Book of Remembrance, the chosen entry is also available in a card format.  If the application for the book contains a piece of artwork, the family can determine whether or not this is to also appear in the remembrance card.  These cards can be applied for along with the main Book entry or at any time in the future.
