All sites in seafront locations in Sidmouth, Beer, Budleigh Salterton and Exmouth are currently allocated. We're sorry but no further commissions in these areas can be taken until spaces become available.

There is some limited availability in other areas of these towns but there is availability on Seaton esplanade and The Glen in Honiton.

Please note, we can only place memorial seats on land owned by us and where there is an available space. For seats in other villages and communities, please contact the appropriate parish council.

For seats in The Byes, Sidmouth, please contact the Friends of the Byes volunteer group on fotbyes@gmail.com

Leasing and seat options

Recycled plastic seats are long lasting and an excellent use of material which would otherwise end up as landfill. They can be secured at various locations throughout our district but are especially robust for areas subject to extreme weather conditions.

The plaques used on recycled plastic seats is made from engraved stainless steel which suits the more modern style.

Styles of seat vary depending on which location you choose with details on application.

We can offer a seat on a 15 year lease for a fee outlined below. This includes a provision of a plaque, securing the seat on site and a contribution towards maintenance. There is also the option of renewing the lease for a further 10 years.

Additional or replacement plaques will be charged per plaque, plaques will be offered back to the donor at the end of the lease period.

You can also adopt an existing seat (one without a plaque) for a fee for a period of 15 years.
