Most families who have had cremation wish to commemorate their loved ones and we offer a variety of memorial options to do so.

Please be aware that due to limited space, the options on this page are only available to those who have been cremated, as those who opt to be buried receive memorial in the form of their headstone.

Book of remembrance

The book of remembrance is on permanent display at the crematorium. Entries are carefully inscribed by skilled craftsmen.

The book provides an inexpensive yet lasting record of and memorial to those persons cremated at Mansfield & District Crematorium.

Our pdf icon Book of Remembrance leaflet [158kb] provides more information, example entries and an pdf icon application form [122kb].

Digital book of remembrance

We have a digital on-screen memorial, which is kept near the book of remembrance. Using a personal access card, you can see entries from the physical book of remembrance on screen, followed by four additional slides.

Our pdf icon digital book of remembrance leaflet [1Mb] provides more information, example slide designs and an order form.

Kerb memorials

Bronze kerb plaque memorials include a short inscription and are fixed to a natural stone kerb located around the pond and waterfall feature.

These types of memorials are only available to the next of kin or person who applied for the funeral, on a five year lease.

Vase block memorials

Like the kerb plaques, they are only available for the next of kin or whoever arranged the funeral.

Living memorials

Living memorials are trees or shrubs which are located in the gardens of remembrance and can be leased for various amounts of time. While leased, you are entitled to a plaque in front of the plant.

The crematorium grounds are fully planted, so except for natural renewal, no new planting will take place.

All memorials are in established areas and you will be given a choice of whatever is available at the time.

Memorial plants are not positioned where the cremated remains are scattered. Living memorials are normally available once six months has passed from the date of the funeral.

Bulb remembrance scheme

Many visitors have said they would like to pdf icon contribute [419kb] towards enhancing the floral beauty of the gardens and woodlands, as a token of remembrance of their loved ones.

The gardens and woodlands are designed as a memorial to all, so it is not practical to allow private planting. This is why the bulb remembrance scheme was founded.

Floral tributes

We encourage families to bring floral tributes to the crematorium in remembrance of their loved ones. This includes funeral tributes and memorial flowers.

In order for us to maintain the grounds as a fitting place of remembrance for your loved one, we have protocols in place relating to the movement and disposal of floral tributes.
