Heartfelt Thank You

Posted 15th December 2023

Memorial Service Coverage

A heartfelt thank you to all those who attended our annual memorial service at Lea Fields Crematorium last week. We were overwhelmed and extremely humbled to be joined by so many members of our community, coming together to remember and reflect on the lives of their loved ones. Approaching four hundred people attended the services in total, on the Friday evening and Saturday afternoon, with many lighting candles or leaving a personal message on our tree. Tags from these services are now displayed on our memorial trees, which will be displayed at our funeral homes in Gainsborough and Saxilby throughout the festive period.

Our second successful year of providing a memorial service, our family caring for yours, we expect to host the same again next year, with an evening service on the Friday followed by an afternoon service on the Saturday. We hope that these services in some way provide comfort to our families, at what can be an upsetting time of year. Below you will find some of our favourite photos from this year’s events, which you are welcome to save, download and share with family and friends. We thank you all for your continued support.
