The Garden of Remembrance
We have designed the Garden of Remembrance at All Saints Church in Rayne as a resting place for the cremated remains of the departed and provision has been made for displaying personalised memorial plaques. As you can see from the photographs, we have an open space where remains are buried. The two, curved walls offer space for memorial plaques to be attached so that there is a visible record. The wall is an attractive enhancement to this area of the churchyard and the traditional styled bricks and mortar harmonise with All Saints’ Tudor tower..
The area for the interred ashes is left grassed over in a simple and dignified way which enhances this area as a resting place.
We ask for flowers and memorial items to be placed at the walls themselves rather than on the grassed area. As with the rest of the churchyard we request that all flowers should be living specimens rather than artificial ones.
A bench has been provided so that friends or relatives can sit and view the plot during their visit.
If you wish to make use of the Garden of Remembrance, your undertaker will be able to help you with arrangements and will contact us for you. If you would like to make an application for a plaque directly yourself then please feel free to download the necessary form by clicking the link on this page and sending it to the address indicated.
You will see that there is a particular format for the wording of plaques and that is indicated on the form. The plaque will be made for you based on your particular information and attached onto the Garden of Remembrance wall for you. Please note that we have a set down pattern and policy for the order in which the plaques are attached so that they are setting out in a clear pattern and in order. Ashes are always placed into the ground directly and respectfully with no container. We keep an exact record of the locations of all interments
The plaque is cast in bronze with high relief lettering.
The background is a dark brown. There are no visible fixings.
