Book of Remembrance

Remembering a Loved One at Coventry Cathedral

The Book of Remembrance is viewable in the Cathedral nave. Beautifully bound, and inscribed by skilled calligraphers. It contains the names of deceased loved ones, whom relatives and friends requested their memory be held in a permanent form. We also gratefully remember 'Angels of Hope' who were so fond of Coventry Cathedral that they left a lasting gift of a legacy in their wills.

Names are entered according to the date of death. Each day a page of the book is turned, so the names of those commemorated on their remembrance day are seen.

Members of the public are invited to have the names of departed relatives and friends entered in the book, together with a short inscription of no more than 50 letters.

In the case of parents commemorating a child of their own who has died, the words 'Remember our child' will be added (if you wish). Special prayers may be said with parents by the Book of Remembrance on the anniversary of a child's death.

There is a charge for this service and an entry in the Book of Remembrance is £100 for name and a message.

There are no costs involved for Angel's of Hope (legators). We do have special circumstances entries for a baby or a very young child, please contact email hidden; JavaScript is required for more details or Complete the 'Arranging a Remembrance Form'.

Please note that due to the nature of the work involved, a period of up to 12 months usually elapses before the names are entered.

Please complete the form below, then once submitted click the payment button which you will find under the submit button.
