Memorials

Why have a Memorial?

We have memorialised our deceased relatives and friends for thousands of years, memorials are literally as old as the pyramids.

Memorials act as a focal point to quietly and peacefully reflect in your own time.

They also act as a link with the past and to the future. They give an insight into the history, achievements and even the sense of humour of an individual family or community.

The Gardens of Remembrance Memorial Options

Please do take time to visit the beautiful Gardens of Remembrance and come into the office to discuss anything that you are unsure about.

 We are here to help and will allow you  as much time as you wish in discussing  your exact requirements.

 Over the next few memorial pages we  hope to give you an insight into the  various memorials that are now available  at West London Crematorium. In  particular, the newly created Callard  Garden, with waterside location, offers  surroundings of peace and tranquility.

We have taken a great deal of care and attention to create Gardens of Remembrance that will bring comfort and solace for you and for generations to come.

A brief description and details on ashes interment accompanies each picture.

Most of our memorials are designed for a minimum of two people, this ensures that when the time comes you are assured of being with your loved one.

Memorial lease periods

We offer a choice of lease options on most of our memorials.

Memorials

All our memorial options are created from the very highest quality material. We use granite, bronze and Minsterstone products. We do not use plastic, copper or cheap concrete. The gardens will continue to look good for generations to come.

In order that we maintain gardens that Look as good as they possibly can we ask all our families not to bring in jam jars, trinkets, plastic or similar items which will detract from the overall appearance.
