Create lasting tribute to your loved one with memorial

Have your say

Residents have the opportunity to place a memorial to a loved one at a favourite spot in Chesterfield.

Chesterfield Council’s new scheme allows people to buy a memorial for a 10-year period, with the option to renew after the period is over.

Memorials include a tree with brass plaque from £230, a seat with plaque from £440 and plaque on an existing bench for £120.

The council will buy the memorial on behalf of families and work with them to place memorials in a chosen location, or suggest a suitable alternative site.

Anyone who has bought a memorial will have the chance to be present when it is installed, while a silver spade ceremony is available for those buying a tree.

The council is also offering to install memorials on special dates, such as an anniversary.
