Paying tribute to Fathers at Westerleigh Crematorium

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

On Sunday 16 June the site is hosting a special Father’s Day Memorial Service in Woodland Chapel, starting at 10.30am.

During the service, visitors will be able to write personal messages in honour of a father or father figure they have lost, which will be hung onto a memory tree.

Willow Tree Café will be open between 10am and 2pm serving a selection of hot and cold drinks as well as cakes.

Westerleigh 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, Shaun Chapman-Young who also covers Westerleigh 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.”
