Poppy cascade marks Remembrance
Hertfordshire Independent funeral director J J Burgess & Sons raised money for The Royal British Legion this year with a cascading poppy display at its Hatfield head office.
Bradley Baxter, Senior Funeral Arranger and Office Manager, said: “It is something to think J J Burgess & Sons Independent Family Funeral were around 100 years ago at the conclusion of the Great War. In fact it was called upon to take care of a number of local deceased arising from that war, as it has been for the Second World War and other conflicts since.
“J J Burgess & Sons staff always like to dress the office windows for the period of November to focus locals’ minds on not forgetting those whom made the ultimate sacrifice. This year, inspired by the Tower of London poppy display in 2014, it was decided to display a cascade of poppies in the offices.
“The displays have attracted great interest from clients and passers-by alike and it is hoped that donations to The Royal British Legion will increase as a result.”
J J Burgess & Sons is inviting donation to The Royal British Legion in branch as well as online through www.jjburgess.co.ukTags: cascade, Hatfield, J J Burgess, poppy, remembrance, The Royal British Legion
