Westerleigh Group to hold in-person Christmas remembrance services

Covid-19 restrictions meant that people were unable to visit the on-site chapels at any of Westerleigh Group’s facilities last year

Westerleigh Group’s crematoria across the UK will welcome guests back in-person for their annual Christmas carol and remembrance services in December.

Covid-19 restrictions meant that people were unable to visit the on-site chapels at any of Westerleigh Group’s facilities last year, so instead the company streamed its annual flagship Christmas service online.

This year, families will have both options available; visit their local crematorium in person or, if they prefer not to or are unable to get to there, they can view the service online like last year, so nobody misses out.

Westerleigh Group is the UK’s largest independent owner-operator of crematoria and cemeteries, with 35 sites across England, Scotland and Wales.

Roger Mclaughlan, chief executive officer of Westerleigh Group, said: “We were all so disappointed last year that, because of the pandemic, we were not able to open our doors for our popular Christmas services.

“However, thousands of people did tune in online, which is why, even though we are able to greet guests in person once again this year, we decided we would still make the services available online, too.”

He added: “Westerleigh Group prides itself on the strong links we have with our local communities, so it is really important to us that we make our Christmas services as accessible as possible.”
