Rose Trees and Rose Bushes

These are located in our beautiful Garden of Remembrance where ashes are buried loose (not in a container) underneath a standard rose tree or rose bush. Both of these have the option of an initial five or ten year lease, which are renewable.

A Perspex plaque with or without a motif or an aluminium plaque with an inscription of your choice can be placed at the rose. If you wish, you may also have a small stone memorial which our staff can offer advice on. There are also separate areas for scattering ashes, however, no memorials are allowed in these areas.
