Memorial Trees and Benches

in Cedars Park, Cheshunt

Apply for a Memorial Plaque

Many people choose to remember a relative or friend who has passed away by having a memorial bench or tree added to Cedars Park. In order to make it easier to find memorials, they have been listed on this page, and a Google Earth map with photos of plaques is also being produced as a community project.

The data below has been compiled by Tarant Hobbs and Jake Gutteridge since 2019. Broxbourne Council claim to hold their own memorial list, however this is not publicly accessible and we have been unable to access it on request, hence the creation of this independent listing for public reference.


Can You Help?

We are seeking information about those remembered against numbers at the base of memorial trees that do not include name plaques. If you can help, kindly advise us by e-mailing cedarspark@mail.com, so that a comprehensive list may be produced.
