Situated next to Woodford Park on Headley Road, The Memorial Ground has been held in trust by the Town Council, since 1939 for ‘the recreation and enjoyment of the inhabitants of the Civil Parish of Woodley and Sandford’. The land was originally bought in 1919, by the former trustees, as a memorial to the men of Woodley who died in the First World War.

The Garden of Remembrance within Woodford Park was opened in 2000 and provides a place for quiet contemplation.
The Garden is non-denominational and the names of loved ones who are no longer with us can be inscribed on brass plaques which are then placed on wooden posts around the garden. (We can no longer offer engraving on the large stone in the centre of the garden due to lack of space).
If you wish to remember a loved one in this way, please feel free to contact us for further information on 0118 969 0356 or at email@example.com.
