Celebration of Life Wall

celebration of life wallThe Celebration of Life Wall stands in the Garden of Remembrance within Rectory Lane Cemetery, St Peter’s historic detached burial ground. The Wall provides a space for people who have lost loved ones to place a lasting memorial in the form of a decorated glass tile.

 As the glass tiles are added, they form part of a beautiful and growing glass artwork, like a stained-glass jigsaw puzzle. Gradually, they are revealing an image of a wildflower meadow, designed by local glass artist, Jessica Ecott. As the sun shines through the coloured glass, cemetery visitors can find a space for remembering and giving thanks.

How to purchase a tile

You can purchase a tile and have it engraved with a short text. You may wish to commemorate someone who has died (perhaps in conjunction with having ashes interred here in the Cemetery), or celebrate an important life event such as a birth of a child or a wedding day. Visit the Rectory Lane Cemetery website for prices and details on how to order:
