Chapel of Remembrance

The Chapel of Remembrance is a place for quiet contemplation for visitors to the Cemetery. It is open to the public between April and September.

The Chapel was constructed circa mid-19th Century and features traditional ecclesiastical gothic style architecture. It had fallen into disrepair and was being used as storage, however in 2015 the Parish Council undertook an extensive refurbishment of the building, and further structural improvements are planned.

The Chapel houses the Buckingham War Memorial, which is on loan by Leicester Arts and Museums. The Parish Council was approached by Leicester City, County and Rutland At Risk Project which recovers, restores and suitably relocates war memorials to preserve for generations to come, and who had discovered the memorial in storage in a City Council owned premises.
