Floral Tributes

We welcome floral tributes on the day of the funeral service or in our Book of Remembrance room. These tributes will be displayed on the day of the funeral and then are available to view in our grounds for up to six days depending on the condition of the flowers. Please call our office on 01323 443400 to check before you come to view the flowers just in case they have been removed.

Visitors may lay cut flowers on the lawns throughout the Garden of Remembrance but please be aware that these are removed by the staff once they have withered. We ask that you please remove any wrapping so that these flowers can be composted.

Flowers placed in the Book of Remembrance room are removed when withered.
