Book of Remembrance

Important Notice

The Book of Remembrance room will be closed from 2nd December 2020 for a period of 3 weeks to allow for the refurbishment of the room. A temporary room has been set up to enable you to view the books during this period and the hours of opening are 9am - 4.30pm every day.

The temporary room is situated in the South Chapel waiting room at the front of the site. This room can be accessed via the pathway to the rear of the waiting room.

Alternatively, a digital version of the books is available to view online by clicking 'online book of remembrance' on this page.

The exterior of the building housing the Book of Remembrance

The Book of Remembrance is permanently displayed in a room adjacent to the cloisters. It provides an inexpensive yet lasting record and memorial to those cremated at Portchester Crematorium.

The appropriate page is opened each day so that entries may be seen on each anniversary chosen.
