There are a few ways to establish a memorial for your loved one in Liverpool, from interring their ashes at Colonnade Wall at Anfield to placing a memorial plaque at a crematorium.
Remembering your loved one in Liverpool
When someone chooses to have their ashes scattered, their family and friends may want to designate a space in their memory to visit and remember them.
A memorial, such as a dedicated tree or bench, can be a meaningful way to remember your loved one. It can become a spot for you to visit and think about your loved one in an area that was significant to them, such as their hometown or their favourite area of their local park.
In Liverpool, there are a number of ways you can set up a memorial for your loved one, from interring their ashes in a niche in the colonnade wall at Anfield or by dedicating a rose bush in their name.

Memorialisation is the process of preserving memories of the person who’s died
This could be displaying a memorial plaque, scattering their ashes in a special place or having a bench created in their memory.
Inter ashes in the colonnade wall at Anfield Crematorium
Rather than scattering your loved one’s ashes, you could consider interring them in a niche in the colonnade wall at Anfield Crematorium. Interring ashes is when the cremated remains are placed in a permanent place.
The remains are placed in a wooden casket and sealed with an inscribed plaque, before being placed in a niche on the colonnade wall. You can be present while they inter the ashes, but you will need to contact the council to arrange this beforehand.
The ashes will remain in the niche for a five or ten year period. After this, you can renew the agreement or collect the remains.
You will have three months to collect the ashes, which can then be scattered or interred at a different location—it’s up to you. If you do not collect the ashes, they will be scattered in the garden of remembrance.
Place a memorial plaque in their honour
Place a memorial plaque at either Anfield or Springwood crematoria. These wall-mounted plaques can be engraved in a gold finish, with the option of adding a photograph of your loved one or decorative motif. You could engrave the plaque with the name of your loved one, their date of birth and date of death, or a tribute or quote dedicated to them.
The plaque can be displayed for five years in either the book of remembrance room or the wall in the garden of remembrance. It will be displayed for five years initially, but it can be extended beyond this.
The crematorium’s garden of remembrance is a peaceful place to pay your respects to your loved one.
Dedicate a rose bush in their memory
Dedicate a memorial rose bush to your loved one with a plaque at either Anfield or Springwood crematoria. The plaque can be placed at an existing rose bush or a new one can be planted, if there’s space.
The dedicated plaque has space for 80 letters engraved in black on gold, so you can include your loved one’s name and a short tribute. The plaque will remain on the rose bush for five years, but there is an option to extend it after this time. The crematorium will replace the rose bush for free if it dies before the five years are up.
If a rose bush dies before the end of the five years, we will replace it free of charge.
