Letters to Heaven postbox

December 1, 2023
Queen Elizabeth entrance

Here at Colchester Crematorium we recognise the significance of the grieving process and how bereavement affects each of us in so many different ways.

And so, seeing and hearing how well received ‘Letters to Heaven’ post boxes have been in numerous other crematoria we thought we’d provide one for bereaved families in Colchester and surrounding areas.

Our ‘Letters to Heaven’ post box is easy to find, located within the entrance of the ‘Queen Elizabeth Memorial Gardens’ and placed at a height that is accessible for young children and wheelchair users.

Anyone is welcome to ‘post’ something throughout the year to remember a loved one.

The post box will be emptied periodically, with the contents being burnt and the ashes will be scattered in our Gardens of Remembrance.
