An inscription in the Book of Remembrance is a popular form of memorial. It is simple, meaningful and permanent. Beautiful calligraphy entries — which can include heraldic illuminations such as coats of arms, crests and regimental badges — poems or personal tributes are inscribed in these timeless, leather-bound books, which are on permanent display in or near the chapels at Toronto Necropolis, Mount Pleasant, Prospect, Elgin Mills, Meadowvale and Thornton cemeteries. Memorials can be inscribed on any day of the year that has special significance, such as the date of birth, marriage, death or another anniversary. The Book of Remembrance, in its protective cabinet, is always open at the page for the day, and there is a page for every day of the year.
