Lease and Renewal

Fees include:

  • the plaque
  • chosen motif (Floris Plaques only)
  • 10 year lease in grounds
  • option to renew at lease end

If you purchase a plaque and wish to add another name at a later date, you will need to pay for:

  • a replacement plaque
  • the rights to have a further dedication on the plaque for the remainder of the lease, unless added within the first year of the lease

 

Kerb plaques in grounds 3

Your lease end date will remain the same. If your plaque has fewer than five years lease to run you can choose to renew the lease, ie. Adding ten years on to the existing lease end date.

At the end of the lease if you decide not to renew you may:

  • collect the plaque from our office by appointment or
  • pay a small fee for us to send it to you.

Due to the nature of the material we cannot guarantee that slate plaques may be removed without damage to the tablet

Selecting a plaque position

We can choose a position for you but if you would prefer to make the choice:

  • take name and/or no. of the plaque above/below/left and right of your preferred position
  • select four positions in order of preference
  • contact us by telephone or using the Memorial Enquiry Form below where possible we will reserve your first choice for 28 days

 

Each plaque is individually numbered therefore if you wish to move your plaque to a different position within the Gardens of Remembrance you will need to order a completely new plaque.

To order:

  • download the application form below or
  • make an appointment with one of our staff at South Essex Crematorium
