Ornamental trees and shrubs

Memorial shrub

Where a more individual type of memorial is desired, established ornamental trees and shrubs will fulfil such a need and provide a dignified tribute.

The memorial plate can accommodate up to 125 characters of inscription and can include a motif. 

Plaques with optional motifs [1Mb]

The plate is placed in front of the ornamental tree or shrub during the lease period, each tree or shrub may have up to four plates.


Ornamental trees are dedicated for an initial period of ten years, the shrubs for five years. You have the option to renew for a further period.

During the lease period, we accept full responsibility for the care and upkeep of the tree or shrub, including replacement should this be necessary.

The council accepts no responsibility for the upkeep of the plate.

Unless it is renewed at the end of the lease period, the plate will be removed from its location one month after the expiry date.

How much?

Please see the price list


Unfortunately the trees and shrubs are in limited supply and it is advisable to check availability before deciding on this form of memorial.

It will take approximately six to eight weeks from placing the order to delivery. Upon completion a letter will be forwarded to the applicant advising them of the location.
