Heartfelt Thank You

A heartfelt thank you to all those who attended our memorial service on Friday evening. 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. In excess of two hundred people attended the event, with many lighting candles or leaving a personal message on our tree. Tags from the evening will continue to be displayed at our funeral homes in the coming weeks on memorial trees at both Gainsborough and Saxilby.

The first event of its kind for us, in approaching 60 years of history, we now plan for this to be an annual service, one which we hope will provide comfort to families at what can be an upsetting time of year. For those who couldn’t attend on Friday or did attend but would like to watch again, a live webcast will be available to watch online from early next week. A link and login details for this can be found below. You can also see a selection of photos below from the evening that you are welcome to save, download and share with family and friends. We thank you all for your continued support.
