The annual deadline for applications is August 1st to allow sufficient time for processing prior to the September Honor Program.

Any application received after August 1st date may be held for engraving the following year. 

Guidelines and Other Important Information

Since Fall 2011, all names have been engraved on walls surrounding the Garden. Although approximately 1,200 river stones are set in the streambed, not all stones are suitable for engraving and those that are, have already been engraved. 

In an effort to confirm a family's desire to memorialize someone in the Garden, all requests for engravings will be cleared through immediate family members before an engraving will be approved.

  • No victim's name will be added without confirmation the family has been contacted and a completed application is on file.
  • Because the Garden of Peace is a Massachusetts memorial to homicide victims, a connection to Massachusetts is required - typically the victim's place of birth, place of death, residence, or family's residence.  
  • Each engraving includes the victim's name, date of birth, and date of death.
  • Engravings are done once a year prior to the Honor Program each September.
  • The current cost is $195.00, which covers the actual cost of engraving. If you're unable to make full payment at this time, partical payment will be accepted and appreciated. You may still submit the application and someone will contact you about payment options and/or possible financial assistance. No application will be denied for inability to make payment or complete payment.
  • Payment will be accepted from friends, family, or other supporters.

To submit your application in writing, please download, complete, and mail this engraving form.
