Crematorium memorials

There are a range of memorials available at Hereford Crematorium, depending on whether you wish to inter the cremated remains or simply place a memorial or dedicate a tree or bench. There are three memorial gardens where cremated remains can be interred or scattered and memorials laid or dedicated:

Garden of Remembrance

This is an area where cremated remains can be are interred. The garden is designed to create an atmosphere of peace and serenity. It includes a more formal area with initial pathways flanked by kerbs displaying bronze and granite memorial plaques. There are designated areas for memorial vases to be placed with the plaques. The paths lead to a more informal area, with memorial trees and benches and a lawn where cremated remains are interred. There is also the Book of Remembrance Room, which holds the Book of Remembrance containing memorial entries.
