Residents can now honour their loved ones with a new memorial tree at Weston Road Cemetery.

The Mulberry tree comes complete with 16 branches and can hold 240 heart shaped leaves. The leaves can be engraved with a name, year or birth and year of death. Personalised leaves start at £150 each and are displayed for five years on the tree.

Councillor Simon Speller, Portfolio Holder for Environment and Climate Change, said: “The tree is a beautiful addition to Weston Road Cemetery, providing a unique and dignified way of memorialising loved ones.

“We know that Christmas can be a difficult time for many, particularly if you have recently lost a loved one, and the memorial tree will give people the opportunity for a moment of quiet reflection.”
