Westerleigh Group crematoria tribute fathers

Father's day

Every crematorium and cemetery within Westerleigh Group is inviting families to visit around Father’s Day to honour the lives of their loved ones in the peaceful setting of their grounds.

The bereaved can also post messages and Father’s Day cards in the crematoria’s memorial post boxes, one of which is at every site.

A variety of other activities have also been organised by the crematoria to mark Father’s Day.

Some crematoria are opening their chapels to enable people to have peaceful moments of reflection and remembrance.

Others have flowers, wooden hearts, pebbles or other items which can be personalised and either placed at a loved one’s memorial within the crematorium grounds or taken home.

Some have memory trees, which tags can be added to, while others are offering the opportunity for the bereaved to light commemorative candles.

Westerleigh Group is one of the UK’s largest independent owners and operators of crematoria and cemeteries, with 40 sites in England, Scotland, and Wales, all set within beautifully landscaped gardens of remembrance which provide peaceful places for people to visit and reflect.

Westerleigh Group’s Chief Executive Officer, Debbie Smith, said: “Father’s Day can be a particularly poignant time for those who have lost their father or father-figure, or for fathers who have been bereaved of a child.

“We welcome everyone to our beautifully peaceful crematoria grounds over the Father’s Day period and hope that they will gain comfort from their visit, and from being able to post messages and cards to their loved ones in our memorial post boxes.”
