Memorials in parks and open spaces

A memorial gives you a permanent place of reflection and comfort, where family and friends can remember a loved one for years to come.

Memorial Tree

You can choose the species of tree or ask our Forestry Team for one to be recommended for a particular site. The price depends on the species chosen however as a guide, the cost of supply and planting is around £200.

You can request a memorial tree by calling 0121 704 8000.

Memorial Bench

With cast iron seat ends and hardwood timber slats the bench would be installed on a slab base in a location in the Park mutually agreed with you.

A cast bronze plaque bearing the wording of your choice would be fitted securely to the top slat of the bench.

Following installation the bench will be maintained by us. The cost of a memorial bench is £1000 (inclusive of VAT).

We will consider requests for any park or open space with the exception of Malvern and Brueton Park. We do not have capacity for any more new benches at these locations due to the number of memorial benches already installed.

You can request a memorial bench by calling 0121 704 8000.

Various memorials to commemorate your loved ones are also available at Solihull Cemeteries and Crematoria. Visit our memorial options page for further information.
