Book of Remembrance

A Book of Remembrance is available to provide a lasting record and memorial to loved ones who have either been cremated or buried.

The books are placed in either St Helens Chapel of Remembrance or Newton-le-Willows Chapel of Remembrance (your choice of chapel should be indicated on your application).

The book is handmade throughout and is bound with the finest materials, offering the same degree of permanence and artistic excellence as the best examples of medieval illuminated manuscripts. A page is provided for each day of the year and the book will remain open at the appropriate page so that inscriptions may be seen on the anniversary of the date, for many years until the book is full; after which, it will always be preserved and available for reference.

Relatives and friends may have memorial inscriptions written in the Book of Remembrance under either the date of death or a date of your choice.

Such inscriptions should comprise two, five or eight lines, the first line being name only and others for the date and wording of your choice.

A range of emblems are available with three to eight line entries, which may serve to enhance your chosen inscription.

No more than 33 letters or figures are allowed per line.

Advice and assistance is available from the Bereavement Service Team at the Cemetery and Crematorium Office.
