In Celebration - Jersey Heritage

Donations in memory are a wonderful way to honour the life of a loved one or commemorate a special occasion. Donations help ensure that our sites can continue to be enjoyed by future generations.

If you would like your loved one remembered or wish to commemorate a special occasion at one of our sites by placing a memorial bench the please contact helen.gray@jerseyheritage.org

Because each Jersey Heritage site has its own historic interpretation any bench placed on the site needs to be in keeping with this interpretation which reflects the historic integrity of the site. 

Therefore Jersey Heritage have developed a supplier and a ‘bench style’ for each Jersey Heritage site.  From 24 April 2015 all benches purchased for the sites will be in the approved bench style relevant to that site.

Sites and Availability - Currently Mont Orgueil only.

Costs

Jersey Heritage have developed two in-memoriam options for donors.

Buy a Plaque

A plaque can be purchased and placed on an existing bench at a Jersey Heritage site.  This plaque will be placed on a bench with up to 5 other plaques.  The plaque will be on the bench for a 10 year period from the date of installation.   At the end of the 10 years Jersey Heritage will contact the donor to request a renewal of the plaque.  Should the donor not renew the plaque will be removed and be available for collection from Jersey Heritage for one month following the removal of the plaque. 

Cost £500 for a plaque for a term of 10 years.

Buy a Bench & Plaque

An approved bench style and plaque can be purchased and placed at a Jersey Heritage site.  Jersey Heritage guarantee that any bench purchased through this scheme will only have one plaque on that bench. 

The bench and plaque will be in place for a 10 year period from the date of installation.   At the end of the 10 years Jersey Heritage will contact the donor to request a renewal of the bench.  Should the donor not renew bench and plaque will be removed and can be made available for the donor to collect from the site (at their own cost) for one month following the end of the 10-year contract.
