Memorials at Warren Hill

Book of Remembrance

Entries in the Book of Remembrance at Warren Hill in Kettering are a uniquely personal memorial that will last for centuries.

The book is in four quarterly volumes, handmade throughout with leaves of the finest sheepskin parchment and bound in natural calf vellum, richly tooled in gold. An opening of two pages is provided for each day of the year. 

Inscriptions may be seen on each anniversary of the date of death for many years until the volume is filled, after which it will always be preserved and available for reference.

The memorial entries are carefully inscribed by highly-skilled artists. Entries of five lines or more may include a Regimental Badge, embellished with a delicate watercolour painting of any flower and other images, which are significant to the family.

The whole entry is executed by hand which offers the same degree of permanence and artistic excellence as the best examples of medieval illuminated manuscripts.

Application forms and prices can be requested from the Bereavement Services Team.


If you would like to view the original inscribed entry in one of the books, if they are available, please call 01536 525722 to arrange an appointment between 8am and 4pm, Monday to Friday. 

As the books are in quarterly volumes there may be a delay in the entry being inscribed. They are sent to calligraphers twice a year to be updated so may not be available for viewing during certain times of the year.

Digital and online

For the long-term protection and security of the Books of Remembrance, we have installed a digital touchscreen version available all-year round for viewing, when the grounds are open.

You can also view the Book of Remembrance online.
