A Catalogue of Dedicated Benches
Whilst wandering around Christchurch Park in Ipswich, Suffolk I noticed that around 2/3rds of the wooden benches were inscribed as a memorial to some one or an event - so I have decided to photograph and catalogue them- and perhaps find out a bit more about the people and history of Ipswich along the way!

Near Christchurch Mansion
This bench on the approach to Christchurch Mansion is dedicated to Ralph Sidney Tricker 1920-2008 with 'Loved and remembered always' across the bottom'
In the gardens at the side of the mansion is this bench for Veronica Burlinson 1925-2005 - another person who I cannot find any info on at the moment.
Also in the gardens is this bench to Trevor David Welham who worked for Ipswich Borough Council, stamping out benefit fraud and who died at an early age of 56.
Just around the path from him is Ian David Drake 9.7.68-28.6.05. Inscribed with Forever in Our Hearts and a picture of a koi carp
