Crematorium memorials, plaques and tributes

Books of remembrance

Books of Remembrance provide a personal and everlasting memorial. Medway's traditional books of remembrance are held in the Chapel of Meditation at the Crematorium.

These have been enhanced by a digital book that is accessible whenever the grounds are open. A swipe card will enable someone to visit the crematorium on any day and view their entry using the digital book.
The digital book is also available online. When you are sent a swipe card, you will be told what the website address is, and will be able to type in the unique code on your card to view your entry.

The expected life of a swipe card is 10 years and replacement within this time period is free subject to the presentation of the old card.
