Memorial options after cremation
Garden of Remembrance memorial plaque
If you wish to remember a loved one after cremation, a memorial plaque in our Garden of Remembrance may be something you are considering.
Plaques can be placed within the grounds of either Springwood or Anfield Crematoria, where we have many sections available to reflect and remember in beautiful and peaceful surroundings.
Plaque inscriptions are in black on gold, with space for five lines of text with a maximum of 20 characters per line.
With the option of a stake containing one or two memorial plaques, these are placed next to an existing rose bush in memory of your loved one.
An example of how the plaque may look is below:
The lease term is for five years, with the option to renew at the end of the lease period.
The gardens are maintained by our excellent grounds team, who will tend to the sections and replace rose bushes where necessary.
If a plaque goes missing or gets damaged, we will replace the plaque free of charge during the lease period. If you wish to change the inscription, an administration fee of £20 may apply.
You can have up to 2 plaques on one stake. If ordering a new plaque, you can choose to add a second plaque for an additional fee – see prices below.
If you have already purchased a plaque, you can request an additional plaque which will be displayed until the lease expires on the original rose and plaque.
Second plaques cost £47 and will sit underneath the first plaque on the same stake.
Renewing the memorial
When the five-year period is coming to an end, we will contact you to ask if you wish to renew it for a further five years, the associated costs and how to pay. If you do not wish to renew the memorial, the plaque will be removed from display.
Displays will also be removed at the end of the term if we are unable to contact you, or if you have not told us your contact details have changed.
- A Garden of Remembrance memorial plaque: £152.
- A second plaque, when ordering a new plaque: £47.
- An additional plaque added to an existing stake: £47.
- Replace a missing or damaged plaque, or change the inscription: No charge.
When applying, we will ask if you would like to make an appointment for the placing of the plaque and if you intend to scatter ashes when placing this memorial.

The easiest and quickest way is to apply and pay online.
What happens next?
We will contact you when the plaque is ready for placement. If you have chosen to scatter ashes when placing the memorial, we will confirm a suitable date and time for this.
We understand that the loss of a loved one is heartbreaking and very personal. Everyone who has a memorial within the grounds or visits to remember their loved one is suffering the same loss. We have certain rules, guidelines or requests to promote fairness, equality and respect for others. To avoid any upset, please read the terms and conditions for this memorial.
