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.
What better way to celebrate the life of a loved one lost, than with a living tree that will grace one of Bedford’s beautiful parks for decades to come.
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 our scheme on Trees for Streets to fill in a request
