Our Books of Remembrance provide a simple and lasting memorial that you can see displayed in glass cabinets in the Book of Remembrance building.
The hand-made books are bound in black Morocco leather with pages of goatskin parchment. The inscriptional work is done by lettering craftsmen. Each volume has a page for each day of the year, and the pages are turned daily.

Adding an entry to a book
You can decide which date the entry is to appear, whether it’s your loved ones birthday, anniversary or their date of death, whatever date is special for you. To ensure that the entry appears for the first anniversary, please order it six month before the date.
You can have two lines of text, or a longer entry, with optional floral and non-floral emblems or coats of arms.
The Authority is aware of the desire of many persons to have a copy of the inscription as it appears in the Book. It has, therefore, been arranged for Universal copies to be available either in a miniature reproduction of a Book of Remembrance or on a Folded Remembrance Card.
We can also offer a personal copy of the inscription as it appears in the Book. This can either be as a miniature reproduction of a Book of Remembrance or on a folded Remembrance Card.
