You may wish to commemorate a loved one with a memorial at Walton Lea Crematorium.
Many people choose a memorial here because the cremation took place at Walton Lea, or because the ashes were scattered or interred within our grounds. But it doesn’t matter if not, anyone can dedicate a memorial to someone they have lost.
There’s no rush to decide, you can dedicate a memorial at any time. We’ve listed the memorials available here, but you can also visit us in person where we’d be more than happy to explain further and show you the different options.
Call into our office at the crematorium on Monday-Friday between 9:00 am-4:45 pm, or make an appointment to use our private memorial consultation room on a Saturday or Sunday.
All costs include VAT.
The Book of Remembrance provides a lasting memorial, and is displayed in a glass cabinet in the Book of Remembrance room. There is a page in the book for each day of the year – we turn the page daily. You can decide which date the entry will appear (usually the date of death), and then you’ll be able to visit and view your loved one’s epitaph on that day every year.
Or you can view the digital version at any time using our touch screens in the crematorium office (you’ll need a viewing card), or online: Search the Book of Remembrance.
