Memorial Plaques

A wide range of memorial plaques are available for purchase through Council.  Plaque choices include bronze or granite and can be personalised to include emblems, family crests, illustrations and photographs.

Memories are precious and should be shared with future generations.  A plaque is an item of beauty and great dignity which provides a focus for grieving and a point of reference to a person's existence. By selecting a bronze plaque, you are carrying on a rich and proud tradition.  Bronze is an ageless and elegant metal that has been used for thousands of years to commemorate and memorialise people, places and events.
