Other important information

Please can adults supervise their children in the garden, especially around the Fountain.
The garden is not a memorial garden and ashes cannot be scattered here. If you wish to scatter ashes in Hertfordshire you need permission from the relevant council. Please contact our cemetery officer on 020 8207 7497 who can send you a list of suitable locations in Hertfordshire.
Hi. It would be nice to see Lucy Kemp-Welch spelled correctly on you History page – Welch not Welsh. Also on the About page you talk about visitors being able to use the toilets at the golf club. I don’t think they are accessible now are they?
Thank you for looking at our website and pointing out theses errors. Hopefully they have now been corrected. We are always pleased to hear from people who are interested in the Garden and hope you will visit and enjoy the changing seasons.
Many thanks for quick work. I visit the Rose Garden very often.
