The Memorial Garden

Please note: Our Memorial Garden Ceremony for 3rd April will no longer be going ahead, due to the current COVID-19 situation; all new Memorial Plaque customers will be advised of future dates to attend the garden.

Remember those who have gone before us.

The Forever in Our Hearts Memorial Garden at Tynecastle Park, offers a peaceful, contemplative space in which to remember those who have passed on.  Loved ones are honoured with personalised, engraved, stainless steel hearts that adorn the walls of the garden. Enter through the beautifully crafted steel gates and relax in this place of solitude. 

The centrepiece of this tranquil space is a striking bronze and steel sculpture of the club’s iconic crest. Raised from its middle is a bronze football - a touchstone for generations of Hearts fans.

A small room for quiet reflection is available year round, which displays an ornate stained glass window, originally made for and presented to Hearts legend John Robertson. Over-looking the Garden is the cast bronze 1914 Memorial Trust statue, depicting a soldier from the 16th Royal Scots Battalion.

The garden is free to enter and will be open for visitors during the following times:

Thursday - Saturday 10:00 to 16:00 (non-match days)
Sundays 12:00 to 16:00

Visitors should report to the Museum (accessed via Tynecastle Terrace), and one of our Museum staff will escort you along to the garden.  For special requests to visit outside of these opening times, please contact the club by emailing heritage@homplc.co.uk and we will accommodate where possible.
