Father’s Day at Gedling Crematorium
Westerleigh Group’s Gedling Crematorium is inviting families to visit and commemorate the lives of their fathers and father figures.
It is hosting a special Father’s Day Moment of Reflection event on Saturday 18 June, between 10.30am and 11.30am.
Visitors will be able to write a personalised message in honour of their loved one, which will then be added to a memorial tree. Light refreshments will also be provided.
Gedling Crematorium is part of Westerleigh Group, the UK’s largest owner and operator of crematoria and cemeteries, with 37 sites in England, Scotland, and Wales, all set within beautifully landscaped gardens of remembrance which provide pleasant, tranquil places for people to visit and reflect.
Site Manager Giulia McDonough said: “Father’s Day can be a particularly poignant time for those who have lost their father or father figure.
“Every year, we welcome many families to our grounds who come to lay flowers and commemorate their loved ones around Father’s Day.
“We hope that families will find comfort in their visit to us again this year.”
Donations will also be welcome to the Huntington’s Disease Association, which is Westerleigh Group’s corporate charity partner for 2022.
For those who wish to do something in remembrance on Father’s Day itself, the picturesque, peaceful, grounds at Gedling Crematorium will be open as usual on Sunday 19 June, between 10am and 4pm.
