The Books of Remembrance at the Garden of England Crematorium consist of two half-yearly volumes. The deep blue leather covers are decorated with a beautifully hand-tooled design depicting hop vines,
and are finished in gold leaf. The volumes are displayed
in a dedicated room, which
has been designed in the
style of a Kentish Oast house.
It remains open 365 days a year, so that entries may always be viewed for the current day.
The volumes are presented
in a specially constructed
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.
Copies of an entry from the Book of Remembrance will fulfil the need for a personal record, or may be sent to relatives and friends.
They can be supplied either as a specially designed memorial card, or as a miniature Book of Remembrance. They are particularly suitable for those who cannot easily visit the crematorium.
