Book of Remembrance

When ordering an entry please note that line one of the inscription is for the name only. All the other lines are for the dedication. Each line must consist of a maximum of 40 letters including spaces only. Please note it can take up to four months from placing the order, further details will be provided when an inscription is requested.

An entry into The Book of Remembrance has no lease, therefore there is no end date to your entry and so an everlasting tribute to your loved one.

Memorial Cards and Deluxe Booklets

Memorial Cards and Deluxe Booklets contain an exact hand-written copy of your loved one’s memorial entry, including the illustration. You may also choose to commission a book or card instead of having an entry in the Book of Remembrance.

The Deluxe Booklets have space for additional entries, allowing you to create a unique family memorial that can be passed down through generations. The perfect way to keep your own personal reminder with you wherever you go, and look at whenever you wish.
