Bereaved join together for service of remembrance

Service of remembrance

Hundreds of people have come together for a special service of remembrance organised by Berkshire based funeral director A B Walker & Son.

Candles were lit and tears were shed in memory of loved ones who had died, at an emotional service held by the Bishop of Reading at Reading Minster. Attendees included Lord Lieutenant of the Royal County of Berkshire Mr James Puxley, The Right Worshipful the Mayor of Reading Councillor Sarah Hacker, and Sir John Madejski.

A B Walker & Son Director Julian Walker welcomed those who were there, saying: “At this moment, in this historic building, everyone around you has experienced the loss of a loved one. They know about guilt and anger, sadness and despair, shock and loneliness. Despite the inevitability of mortality, no one is truly prepared for the feelings it brings.

“We hope that you will gather strength as we stop and pause to remember together, celebrating those no longer with us. Today, you are not alone.”
