Memorial Garden

Forget me Not Garden

We are looking to create a new Memorial Garden at Bocking Cemetery to provide a peaceful environment for families to visit. This will be a quiet and pleasant area for relatives, family and friends of all ages to come to remember their loved ones.

The concept design is looking to include:

  • a children’s area where they can grieve
  • a willow dome where you can tie a ribbon in memory of a loved one
  • a child friendly memorial feature
  • the planting of memorial shrubs to form the placement of memorial plaques and kerbstones and a central feature.

There will also be an area for bereaved parents that is more secluded and private with stepping stones leading to benches. This area will have a plaque at the entrance with some comforting words about being a parent.
