Books of remembrance

The Book of Remembrance is a permanent record in memory of a loved one and where an entry has been added it is visible on the anniversary of the date of death. The book has a separate page for each day of the year.

You can view the entry for your loved one at any time, using the online books above.

A page of memory for each day of the year is displayed on the appropriate date.

These are displayed in specially provided rooms at both Dunfermline and Kirkcaldy Crematorium. The Book of Remembrance room is open Monday to Friday between the hours of 9am and 5pm.  The Books of Remembrance can be viewed online anytime via the links at the top of this page.

The inscription is added by an expert craftsman. It is a permanent record in the hand bound books which are encased in purpose built cabinets.

The Books cover each quarter of the year:

  • January to March;
  • April to June;
  • July to September; and
  • October to December.

They are sent away each year, three months prior to going on display, for any new subscriptions to be added.

Outwith that period, appointments can be made to specifically view a date.

Memorial Cards and Booklets:

These are suitable as a personal family record and for sending to distant friends and relatives, being essentially a miniature version of an inscription which would be entered into the Book of Remembrance.
