Westerleigh crematorium is hosting a Mother’s Day service which will be broadcast on the group’s social media channels and websites, in a bid to ensure people are able to “remember their mothers over the holiday” despite current lockdown restrictions.
The service will take place at the newly-opened Sirhowy Valley Crematorium in Caerphilly County Borough, Wales, and will be shown on Sunday 14 March at 11am via links on any of the Westerleigh Group crematoria websites.
Westerleigh Group has said it “wants to make sure people are able to remember and celebrate their mothers”, with a service which will start with a welcome from Roger Mclaughlan, chief executive officer.
The service is expected to last around 45 minutes and will include prayers, hymns and readings.
Mclaughlan said: “Lockdown restrictions will prevent many people from being able to remember their mothers in the way they would wish to, and families will not be able to gather together as they may have done otherwise.
“That’s why we wanted to provide this Mother’s Day service, to bring some comfort to people and to enable them to feel that they are honouring their lost loved ones in a special way.”
He added: “Our festive services of remembrance, which were streamed on-line in December, proved extremely popular and we had some very positive feedback, so we hope people will be equally as pleased with our Mother’s Day service.”
Westerleigh Group, which currently has 45 sites is the leading developer and operator of crematoria and cemeteries in the UK.
