Memorial kerb plaques

AppMemorial kerb plaques are available in the following locations for a 10 year period:

  • Whitley Bay Cemetery Memorial Walk
  • Holy Cross Cemetery Main Drive
  • Tynemouth Garden of Remembrance (limited availability due to popular demand)

The allocated space behind each kerb plaque is limited to the width of the plaque itself. We ask that you take care not to encroach on the space reserved for adjoining plaque owners.

Tynemouth Garden of Remembrance also has recordia plaques which are fixed to the sandstone pillars around the garden. These plaques are also in place for a 10 year period.

Unfortunately, there is no provision for recordia plaque owners to place a vase or token in the Garden of Remembrance or at the base of the pillar. You can place flowers in the vases provided in the Book of Remembrance room at any time.
