Many people find comfort in creating a memorial to a loved one following a burial or cremation. Memorials can provide a peaceful place to visit and remember those who have passed away.

Each memorial consists of a small vase suitable for a posy of silk flowers, with a nameplate.


  • Nameplates are gold-coloured
  • All text is Times New Roman italic
  • Nameplates can accommodate two lines of 18 characters per line
  • The second line of the dedication can accommodate either the dates of birth and death, or a short message
  • Images cannot be added to the plaques


Posy vase memorials are located in the Book of Remembrance Chapel at South Stoneham Garden of Rest.


Memorials can be dedicated for 5, 10 or 20 years. After this time they can be renewed.

Dedications for 5 or 10 years can be applied for online.

For a 20 year dedication you will need to complete the downloadable form below.

Once we receive your order a proof of your memorial will be created and sent to you for sign off.
