Buy a memorial bench

Memorial Benches

If you would like to have a memorial bench placed in a park or open space in memory of a loved one you can purchase a bench with a plaque and donate it to The Royal Borough of Kingston where this will be maintained as a public bench.

Location

It will assist our enquiry if you have a location in mind as we will be able to look into the availability of that site. We can replace non-dedicated benches with a new memorial bench and we will consider requests for new locations in all our parks and open spaces.

There are restrictions on the style and the placement of a memorial bench, with some sites already having a high concentration of seating.

The following locations are currently at capacity:

  • The Queens Promenade
  • Claremont Gardens

It may not be possible to have your preferred location, but we will consider all requests and endeavour to find a site suitable. Some locations may also require approval from third parties.

Once donated and installed, the bench becomes the property of the Council and we reserve the right to remove the bench where it is deemed unsafe for use.

Style of Bench and Cost

All prices, including bench, fixings, carriage, and installation;

  • Eastgate Seat - £524.60 + VAT
  • Plaque - £94 + VAT
  • Installation (including new hard standing) - £826 + VAT
  • Total Price - £1,444.60 + VAT

All of the benches include a plaque where you are able to add an engraved message to your loved one.
