Paying tribute to Fathers at Woollensbrook Crematorium

Woollensbrook Cemetery & Crematorium is inviting people to visit to remember and pay tribute to their loved ones in honour of Father’s Day.

Throughout the day on Sunday 16 June, there will be a table outside the crematorium’s chapel containing wooden pebbles which visitors can decorate in memory of a father or father figure.

The pebbles can then either be placed within the landscaped grounds of the crematorium, by the loved one’s memorial or taken home.

Woollensbrook Cemetery & Crematorium is part of Westerleigh Group, one of the UK’s largest independent owners and operators of crematoria and cemeteries, with 40 sites in England, Scotland, and Wales, all set within beautifully landscaped gardens of remembrance which provide pleasant, peaceful places for people to visit and reflect.

Westerleigh Group prides itself on providing exceptional care to the bereaved, the standards of which are inspected by the Federation of Burial and Cremation Authorities (FBCA) in England and Wales, and the Scottish Government.

Divisional Operations Manager, Claire Butcher who covers Woollensbrook Cemetery & Crematorium said: “Occasions such as Father’s Day can be particularly poignant for anyone who’s been bereaved of a paternal loved one.

“Our site provides the fitting and welcoming environment for anyone who is looking for a quiet place of reflection and contemplation.

“During their visit, guests can also leave a Father’s Day card in our Letters To Loved Ones memorial post box, which was installed several months ago to give people a feeling of connection with someone they can no longer be with.

“Regardless of whether they’re newly bereaved, lost their loved one a while ago, or where their funeral took place, our Father’s Day invitation is open to anyone who is looking for a place of comfort at this special time of year.”
