Forget U Not Memorial Tree and Garden


The “Forget You Not” memorial tree is made from Corten steel and hosts 240 green granite leaves, set in the tranquility Peace Meadow area within Blaby Cemetery.

A  leaf can be purchased and engraved with the name of a loved one who has sadly left us with a small inscription and a choice of 10 motifs, allowing the names of the deceased to live on whether they have been cremated or buried within the cemetery or elsewhere.

The “Forget You Not” eco-friendly envelope containing a 100% recycled card and a small packet of wildflower seeds, where thoughts and memories can be put down on paper and posted in the “Forget U Not” post box, the seeds will be scattered in the wildflower garden, this helping the preservation with the wildlife particularly the bees and butterflies.

The fee for this unique service is £95.00 VAT for an inscription leaf or £25.00 + VAT for an inscription and motif, the leaf will come with a 10 year lease. On expiry of the lease, the leaf will be removed and handed back to the purchaser.

“Forget You Not” cards and sees can be purchased from the Blaby Parish Council office for £3.00.
