Books of Remembrance Update 

Due to Covid restrictions, the Book of Remembrance Room is currently closed. 

It has not been possible to re-open it due to ongoing restrictions and the confined nature of this room. We have made alternative arrangements so that the books can be viewed again. They are now displayed in the three bay windows at the front of the main building, including the Baby Book of Remembrance. 

The electronic book of remembrance will be relocated as soon as is practicable. It will then be available to view again. When this happens we will again place information on the website and on Penmount’s Facebook page.

In the interim you can access the book online
