Memorial benches and trees

 Memorial benches in Bedford

Creating a memorial for a loved one, either as a plaque on a park bench, or by planting a tree for them, leaves a lasting legacy.

You may also wish to create a memorial to mark a special event or occasion.


If you decide to dedicate a bench within a council park or green space, this can either be in the form of a new cast bronze plaque fitted onto an existing bench, or a completely new bench (subject to location).

The parks in which dedications can be located include:

  • Bedford Park
  • The Embankment
  • Mowsbury Park 
  • Russell Park 
  • Priory Country Park

They remain in place for 15 years.


We supply commemorative and celebration trees which are three to four metres tall with a well-developed head of branches through our partnership with Trees for Streets. Please visit Trees for Streets to fill in a request
