Creating new memorials


The Abney Park Trust works to ensure that the historic woodland nature reserve and memorial park has a continuing memorial function. If you would like a small memorial or plaque please discuss your needs with us, since you will need a permit or letter of approval from the Trust.

Please call 020 7275 7557, or email

We can usually approve the following types:

  • a memorial tree with a simple plaque in wood or metal

  • a small wooden cross with carved lettering/motif or with a simple metal plaque

  • a small memorial plaque inset into a bench or other wooden furniture or post

  • a small simple stone memorial to your design, with images and words, carved in our workshop
