Book of Remembrance

The Book of Remembrance is displayed in the Memorial Chapel, and features hand-crafted inscriptions for each day of the year. 

Inscriptions in the Book of Remembrance can be of two, five or eight lines. An inscription of five or eight lines can be accompanied by an illustration. You will have to pay the correct fee for your inscription depending on its size when you order it.

The Book of Remembrance is made up of three volumes, one for each four-month period. We add inscriptions in time for the entry to be displayed on the corresponding date:
