Thames View – Book of Remembrance

The Books of Remembrance at Thames View Crematorium & Cemetery consist of two half yearly volumes. The deep blue leather covers are decorated with a beautifully hand tooled design depicting a rampant white horse, the symbol of Kent.

The volumes are displayed in a dedicated room that is open 365 days a year, so that entries may always be viewed for the current day. The volumes are presented in a specially constructed tamper-proof cabinet.

Memorial entries are hand inscribed by skilled calligraphers and are illuminated in the tradition of medieval manuscripts. The name of a loved one can be recorded on any day of the year that has a special significance such as a birthday, date of death or an anniversary.

The entry can be further enhanced or personalised with a hand painted illustration or special emblem alongside it.
