There are various memorials available to commemorate loved ones at Eastbourne Crematorium.

Book of Remembrance

The Book of Remembrance is the only permanent form of memorial. It provides the opportunity to create a very personal commemoration using your own choice of words. If you wish, a hand-painted emblem or badge can be added next to the five or eight line inscriptions. Lines are inscribed in black ink and the initial letter of the surname is illuminated in gold. The Book is in eight volumes, two for each quarter and four pages are allocated to each day.

The volumes are displayed in closed glass-topped cabinets and are open at the appropriate date every day. Entries can be viewed without appointment on the anniversary date. If you wish to see another date please call us to ensure the books are on site and we will arrange for the page to be available for viewing.

Inscriptions are usually entered to mark the anniversary of death but you may choose any other date that is meaningful if you prefer.

Miniature books and remembrance cards

Arrangements can be made to have hand written copies of the entries in the main books in either miniature books or cards.

Memorial vase and tablet

We have two colours of vase and tablet available. White marble vases with black granite tablets are available in two areas of the Garden of Remembrance and a pink granite vase and tablet are available in the Cloister Garden.

Bronze kerb plaque

Cast in bronze with raised lettering, these plaques are fixed on terracotta kerbs in various locations in the Garden of Remembrance.

Classic memorial plaque

This is an aluminium wall panel tablet in satin brown finish which is displayed in the Cloister Garden. It can have up to seventy characters inscribed in words of your choice.

Roses or shrubs with plaque

Pre-planted roses or shrubs can be dedicated with a cast bronze plaque located in front.  Rose and shrub beds are located throughout the Garden of Remembrance.

Arboria wall plaques

These are natural timber veneered plaques displayed on panels in the book or Remembrance Room.  There are four options to choose from. Engraved with text only, text with an engraved motif, text with an engraved and hand-painted motif or text with a ceramic portrait.
