Annual memorial services

Every year we hold memorial services at our cemetery chapels to help people pay respect to their loved ones. These services are open to all members of the public.

The Minister will read the names of those you would like to remember during each service. If you would like to be involved in these services, for example by singing or reading a poem, please get in touch.

You will be invited to place a personal message on the Christmas tree if you wish to do so, and tea lights will also be available for you to light and leave burning throughout the service.
