Book of Remembrance

Books of Remembrance provide a beautiful and lasting memorial to the memory of a loved one.

The Books are handmade and lettered by highly skilled craftsmen and are displayed in protective glass cabinets. Open daily from 9.00am – 5.00pm the Remembrance Room is situated to the rear of Darlington Crematorium with its picture window capturing the Garden of Remembrance.

Each volume contains entries for four months and a page is provided for each day of the year.  Memorial entries may be viewed on each anniversary or by appointment at other times should the books be available.

Books have also been digitally photographed and can be viewed at any time on the Online Book of Remembrance [external link]

Entries of between two and eight lines are permitted, with the first line bearing the name.  In addition to Floral emblems, Heraldic illuminations such as Coats of Arms, Crests and Regimental Badges can form part of an entry of at least five lines.

Examples are on display at the Crematorium Office.  Staff are available at the office to help you compose suitable wording for the inscription or to select appropriate illustrations.

To ensure an entry is produced in time for display, the completed application must be received at the office not later than six months before the anniversary.
