Reigate Garden of Remembrance

Please note: From 21 June, visitors will only be able to access the garden of remembrance from Bancroft Court (by Reigate Library). We will be closing the gate leading towards Lesbourne Road or Church Walk permanently in the interest of public safety and to maintain a peaceful and respectful environment in the garden. We apologise for any inconvenience.

The Reigate Garden of Remembrance was designed in 1951 specifically for the placement of cremated remains. Situated in a peaceful setting just minutes from Reigate town centre, the site was originally the garden of remembrance for the Northover Funeral Home. When Northover & Sons Funeral Directors closed in 1978 responsibility for the garden transferred to Reigate & Banstead Borough Council.  The Reigate Garden of Remembrance is permanently open to visitors.

The Reigate Garden of Remembrance comprises of six separate lawns featuring rose beds and fine ornamental trees. This beautiful garden is popular with visitors many of whom frequently return to visit the resting place of their loved one, to tend memorials, leave flowers or simply to feel comforted.

The choice of memorials range from traditional rose beds to memorial plaques and tablets in a variety of different sizes and materials.

Memorial plots

Each memorial plot can be used for at least two interments. Cremated remains can be either interred, poured into the ground loose or scattered on the lawn. Individual plots can also be personalised through the planting of flowers and shrubs or the addition of kerbing and stone chippings. You are also able to select a specific plot for immediate or future interments, subject to availability and your requirements.

For those that do not wish to purchase a memorial plot there is a designated scattering area within the garden.

Also featured in the garden is a memorial planter for those that wish to place a memorial to a loved one even though they may be buried elsewhere.
