At Charles Stephens, we understand that the day of the funeral is highly emotional and so it can be difficult to keep a note of all those who attended the funeral. A Book of Remembrance, Condolence Book or Memory Book is a lovely way for guests to write messages and tributes. Our books range in price from £15 to £60 and are available in various colours and finishes. - A Wonderful Life – our beautiful leather bound Book of Remembrance is bound in red or black leather; - Our Book of Condolence is hard backed and available in black, navy or green faux leather. It is also available in black, burgundy or navy linen; - The Memory Book is a smaller book but, along with our other two condolence books, is perfect for creating memories of the deceased.; These classic books are also a simple way for family and friends to express their sympathy and to share their memories of your loved one, which can offer comfort in the days to come. Being able to read at leisure about a loved one, their qualities, their strengths and how they touched other people’s lives is deeply moving.
The books have plenty of space for guests who have come to pay their respects to leave their name and address, allowing you the chance to thank them later if you wish.
People often use the books to hold treasured photographs, letters of condolence or even the little cards attached to flowers. We can also provide you with our white Keepsake Boxes in which you can add anything from photographs, jewellery, an ornament or even a lock of hair.
Please ask us about our Attendance Cards which lets mourners notify you of their presence. Our cards cost £25 for 100 and can be ordered during the funeral arrangements. Our high quality small white cards come with a black edging and are typically placed on a church pew or at the crematorium for mourners to fill in.

This is just a small selection of condolence books. Please ask your funeral director to see our full range.
