Remembering Service

Every year around the festive season we hold a number of ‘Remembering Services’ for our clients. These services allow for a time of reflection and remembrance for families who have lost loved ones during the past year and beyond. Many of our families come back year after year as an annual pilgrimage to honour family members.

An invitation to our Remembering Service will be sent to the email address that you registered with us during the funeral arrangements, inviting you to register for the service if you wish to. Alternatively if you do not wish to attend in person we can read the name of your family out during the
service and light a candle on your behalf.

The service itself is based on a Christian service but suitable for all faiths and those of no faith. During the service there is an opportunity to light a candle in memory of lost loved ones and light refreshments are served after the service.
