Rams Remember, a service launched by Derby County seven years ago, provides supporters with the chance to remember and celebrate the lives of friends, family and fellow supporters who have sadly passed away over the past couple of years.
As part of the club’s continued and long-standing relationship with preferred partner Wathall’s, the club will stage two ‘Rams Remember’ fixtures at Pride Park Stadium over the course of the 2023/24 season.
Vs Wycombe Wanderers, 16th December 2023 (Submissions AVAILABLE NOW and are required by 10th December 2023)
Vs Leyton Orient, 13th April 2024 (Submissions will open on 13th March 2024)
The club would like to offer supporters the opportunity to submit the details of their loved ones who are no longer with us by completing the below submission form.
Submissions for the match against Leyton Orient will be available in early 2024.
The names of those who have sadly passed away will appear across the RamsTV production ahead of kick-off at their selected fixture.
Supporters should note that there is a limited capacity for names per fixture.
Engraved memorial bricks can be purchased from Wathall’s.
These are an engraved memorial brick with black slate and silver engraving and take pride of place in a dedicated memorial area on the East side of Pride Park Stadium.
There is also the opportunity for ashes to be interred with the memorial brick.

Wathall’s, which is Derby’s longest established independent funeral directors, works in partnership with Derby County to enable Rams fans to have a unique and personal send-off.
Wathall’s, which has branches in Derby city centre, Allestree, Alvaston, Ashbourne Borrowash and Burton-on-Trent, give families special access to Pride Park Stadium following the funeral of their loved one.
Options include the chance to place a commemorative brick and ashes around the perimeter of Pride Park Stadium; using the club logo and colours for flower arrangements and coffins; inclusion in the remembrance book at the stadium and ashes interment gatherings.
These are available either as part of a funeral pre-payment plan for someone who is in the process of planning their own funeral or to the bereaved’s family after their death.
