Granite memorial bench plaque

Information on granite memorial bench plaques and details of how to apply

Granite memorial seats at Boston crematorium (plaques on benches are quite limited, so it is advisable to telephone or email first to check availability)

It is possible to dedicate a memorial plaque to a loved one to be fixed to a granite seat.  A plaque can be leased for periods of five years at a time, after which a reminder is issued, enabling you to continue the dedication for further periods if you so wish.  The fee payable, includes for providing the plaque inscribed with wording of your choice, administration and maintenance for five years.  The bench remains the property of Boston Borough Council, but is maintained on your behalf, in memory of your loved one(s).

Each seat will hold three inset granite plaques, and they are leased on the understanding that a bench may hold dedications to three unrelated persons.  This is so that more families have the opportunity to dedicate a seat, which is a memorial limited in numbers.  However, If you wish to dedicate a whole seat you may lease all three plaques, upon payment for each plaque.

If you wish to dedicate a plaque on a memorial bench, please complete the application form below and send it with your remittance to the address on the left.

Please note that there may be times when these memorials are fully subscribed and therefore not available for a period. This is to prevent over saturation within the grounds.

It is not be permitted to place vases or other items on, or adjacent to, the benches, with the exception of Christmas wreaths. Nor is it permitted to plant the surrounding area.
