Memorial benches are situated in a variety of positions around Harbour View. They are typically placed along pathways and hedgerows rather than in open grassland.
All memorial benches within the grounds of Harbour View are free for any visitors to sit upon even when adorned with memorial plaques; there is no exclusivity of use to the families of the deceased commemorated. Memorial plaques are available in Brass and are fixed to the selected bench for a minimum initial period of 5 years; this is renewable for as long as the surviving family wish to do so. The plaque will be engraved with the name of the deceased and some words of commemoration of the family’s choosing.
