Book of Remembrance

To commemorate loved ones, we provide books of remembrance at the Aldershot Crematorium.

The books are hand-bound and covered in the finest vellums and the inscriptions added by craftsmen.

There is one book for each quarter of the year and a page of remembrance for each day. You may chose to commemorate the date of death, a birthday or wedding anniversary in the book.

Entries into the book of remembrance can be two, five or eight lines long. The books stay at the crematorium and you can come and see them at any time. You can also view the Book of remembrance online.

If you would like an entry in the book of remembrance, download and print off the pdf icon Book of Remembrance application form [199kb] and sent it back to us with the correct payment.

The next three scheduled visits from the artists to inscribe the book of remembrance are during the following weeks:

  • Tuesday 1 September

Online book of remembrance

Entries that have been inscribed in the books of remembrance are digitised four times a year. Once this has happened, you can see the book of remembrance entries online and on the touch screen facility at the crematorium.

The digitising schedule for this year is:

  • April digitising - October, November and December 2019 entries
  • June digitising - January, February and March entries 
  • September digitising - April, May and June entries
  • November digitising - July, August and September entries

Miniature books, replica and memorial cards

You can also get personal copies of your inscription into the book of remembrance as a miniature book or as replica or memorial cards. These are produced by hand in the same way as the books and are particularly useful to send to relatives and friends who are unable to visit the crematorium.

The miniature books are hand-bound in blue leather and gold blocked on the cover with a rose design. They also contain photos of the books of remembrance and crematorium grounds.

The replica cards show a full copy of the cover of the book of remembrance and the memorial card is white with gilt edging and a gold blocked cross on the front. They both contain a colour photo of book of remembrance.

If you prefer, you can provide us with photos to include in the miniature book or the cards.
