In memory benches and plaques


This service is currently unavailable. We expect to resume later in the autumn. Please check this page for updates.

‘In Memory of’ benches 

To help you pay tribute and remember your loved one, we offer the following service.

We have numerous benches in settings around the borough, woods, parks and river settings. We can work with you to allocate one of these existing benches, which we would then refurbish on your behalf and add a plaque with text as agreed by you. 

Each ‘in memory of’ bench will have up to 5 plaques.


  • To refurbish or fully restore an existing seat (ie repaint and tidy the base): £500
  • To install a new replacement metal park bench with hard standing base to prevent erosion: £1,800
  • Seat plaques: engraved and installed: £300
We don’t offer a tree planting service for memorials.
