In late 2016, with a legacy from the Arnold family, Balsall Parish Council began to plan a Memorial Garden for the scattering of ashes. The Memorial Wall, where plaques to remember loved ones can be attached, has been built and the area surrounding it has been landscaped.
With the help of the U3A Garden Group and Balsall Common Lions and Balsall Parish Councillors – the Friends of Temple Balsall Cemetery has been formed to tidy up the existing beds and plant several hundred bulbs. The landscaping is ongoing and hopefully in early 2018 the group will be planting 15 fruit trees in the area. Should you wish to join the group please contact the Parish Clerk on the number below:

There are several benches near the Memorial Wall and Balsall Parish Council hopes that residents will use them for quiet contemplation as the garden evolves.
