A permanent record to commemorate your loved one
The Books of Remembrance are a simple and permanent form of memorial which are displayed in our Book of Remembrance Room at the crematorium. An alternative Book of Remembrance is also held at South Stoneham Cemetery’s Garden of Rest. The pages are turned daily so that relatives can view the entries which are made under the date of death. They comprise of beautifully hand-bound volumes and the entries are inscribed by professional calligraphers. Entries can be viewed on days other than the anniversary either at the online cabinet in the Book of Remembrance Room at the Crematorium, or online at home by visiting our website.
Memorial cards and miniature books, which include individually inscribed copies of the entry, are available to purchase for those who wish to keep a personal copy.
