The Wall of Honour ceremony

Since 2008, we have held six special ceremonies for Wall of Honour nominees, their families and friends, each hosted by our President. You will receive your invitation in the year that your chosen name is inscribed.

These ceremonies have been hugely popular and on two occasions, attracted over 700 guests from around the world.

They typically involve a presentation from our President, a roll call of names, readings by family members and the lighting of candles in memory of those who have passed away.

These events are moving and uplifting, with guests also enjoying a fabulous afternoon tea.

The next ceremony is provisionally scheduled for Spring 2019.

The RSM sadly marks the passing of Alan Failing
Alan was responsible for many inscriptions on the Wall of Honour, as well as other signage around the RSM building. He took great pride in his work, recognising the importance these inscriptions have for families, friends and colleagues. Alan was the ideal sign-writer – accurate, reliable, punctual and easy to get on with. He is much missed.
