North East Surrey Crematorium

Remembrance Building

Book of remembrance

An entry in the book of remembrance is an everlasting memorial to a loved one. The book of remembrance is displayed in the remembrance building and the pages are turned daily. You can decide on which date the entry is to appear and you can come and see your loved one's epitaph on that day each year.

Highly skilled artists carefully inscribe the memorial entries which can range from an inscription to a floral emblem, badge or family crest.

Miniature books and cards

Replicas of the entry are available as inscription cards and vellum bound books. The cards are ideal for those wishing to keep a copy and for sending to friends and relatives who are unable to visit the crematorium.

Opening times

The Remembrance Building opens 30 minutes after the main gates open, and closes 30 minutes before the main gates close.

Electronic book of remembrance

The electronic book of remembrance is a companion of the original Book of Remembrance which is simple to operate and allows the book of remembrance entries to be viewed on a full colour screen. The entries of each page can also be viewed at the North East Surrey Crematorium Book of Remembrance.

Each book of remembrance is photographed annually for the electronic Book of Remembrance, so it may be up to a year before you are able to view your entry on line.

The dedication can include individually designed messages and photographs. Please contact our office where the staff will be pleased to advise you in more detail.

  • CRYSTAL PLAQUES
 A crystal plaque may be placed in the remembrance building with an inscription. There is also the option to include a photograph or motif.
  • COMMEMORATIVE FLOWER VASES
 Commemorative flower vases are one of the most popular forms of memorial, allowing you to place your own flowers from time to time. An individual vase with a memorial plaque may be leased on a yearly basis and placed inside the remembrance building.
