Memorial gardens

A Red Rose

Beautiful Memorial Gardens

Our Memorial gardens consist of a wide variety of beautifully presented flower borders, trees and shrubs. This is very peaceful and tranquil area of the Cemetery grounds (and very colourful in the summer months).

Each individual dedication may be purchased for ten years, and can be extended as desired.

For full details of the types of memorial gardens dedications available please download our Post Funeral Brochure here (2.27 MB)

An inscribed bronze plaque is displayed next to the dedicated item and the ashes of your loved one are placed directly in the soil nearby. A special area for cut flowers is provided, and care is taken to ensure that nothing detracts from the natural beauty of the garden.

For further detail on the memorial gardens or any of our other services please contact a member of our Bereavement Service team on 020 8530 2151 or email the Cremations Team.

Dedication renewals

Once you have a dedication, you can then renew the item for a period of 5, 10, 20 or 30 years. The exceptions are our garden benches and flagstones which can only be arranged for 10 year period.

At the end of the purchased period we will write to the original applicant and invite them to renew the item or look at the options available, for this reason it is important to notify us of any change of address as soon as possible. We can also arrange replacement plaques if this is something you require.

Renewals can be paid for by cheque, postal order or debit/credit card, or if you would like to pay by cash please bring this to our Bereavement Services office at the Cemetery (please do not put cash in the post).

Cheques and Postal Orders should be made payable to the City of London and crossed. If you are not sure when your dedication is due please contact the Memorial Garden Team on 020 8530 2151 or email the Cremations Team or visit our administration office supplying either the dedication number or the full name of the person commemorated.
