Garden of Remembrance

20 December 2012

Remembering loyal Royals

Madejski Stadium offers its own Garden of Remembrance, which is located close to the indoor training dome. 

It was officially opened in April 2011 by Chairman Sir John Madejski and was created as a pleasant environment for people to sit in quiet reflection, as well as a place for those associated with the club to have their ashes scattered. 

The garden itself was designed by STAR and Pastoral Prayer Team member Dave Strawn. Dave oversaw much of the work in developing the garden, aided by generous contributors who have provided benches, shrubs and plants. 

Short services of committal can be arranged through contacting Reading FC Club Chaplain Steve Prince on 0118 966 4474 or by e-mailing
