John Lewis Condolence Book, Black
Perfect for recording memories of a loved one
My mother died recently and I received a lot of emails from her friends around the world giving their memories of what she meant to them and I wanted to share these with her family and those attending her funeral. I very quickly sourced this book and based on a previous review got a small gold plaque with her name and dates put on the front from my local Key cutting shop. I then pasted in sections of these emails, sympathy cards with words others would want to share and put a young picture of my Mum on the front page. At the funeral reception this book was passed around for others to read and to add their own comments. I also added the cards from the floral tributes and the order of service to this book and is a wonderful memory of a very special lady. It is a good quality book, reasonably priced and available for me to pick up locally the next day. Great service during a busy few days organising the funeral.

This is a good quality product which is what we expect from JL and why we chose to order from them. It is as described with good quality paper inside. Some slight creasing to the bottom of the first third of the pages was of some disappointment to us but as there was no time to return it we used it anyway and now that the book holds precious memeories of our mum we don't notice the creasing.

Excellent and hassle free
I tried everywhere to get a Condolence Book at short notice (I only had 3 days to arrange it) and was starting to worry until I found John Lewis. The book is excellent, very well made and of superior quality to others I have seen. It looks like it should cost twice as much and when I added an engraved plaque that I had produced in a local key shop, it looked fantastic. Enough pages for people to write in and they are not lined, just plain which meant people were free to write what they feel, rather than what the lines allow for! The delivery service was second to none and at a time when you really don't need the hassle, it was nothing short of brilliant. I collected for free from my local Waitrose and it was there 12 hours after ordering, fantastic service.
