Westerleigh Cemetery to mark 30th anniversary with historical burial

The team at the site are appealing to the local community for suggestions and items to be placed inside the capsule

Plans have been unveiled to bury a time capsule at Westerleigh Cemetery and Crematorium, near Bristol, to mark its 30th anniversary.

The team at the site – which is now also home to national headquarters for Westerleigh Group – are appealing to the local community for suggestions and items to be placed inside the capsule.

Shaun Chapman-Young, site manager at Westerleigh Cemetery and Crematorium, said: “We pride ourselves on having very close links with our local community, so it makes perfect sense to ask local people to help celebrate our anniversary by suggesting items for our capsule.

“They could be items which reflect 2022, which the future generation can open in 30 years’ time and reflect on, or perhaps they could be items which also look back to 1992, when Westerleigh Crematorium first opened.”

He added: “During the past three decades, Westerleigh Crematorium has proudly become a major part of the local community.

“Firstly, of course, we have always strived to deliver the highest possible standards of service, providing exceptional care in a beautiful setting, so that families can remember, mourn and celebrate the lives of their loved ones in a way that is uniquely personal.”
