Paying tribute to Fathers at Wessex Vale Crematorium

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

On Saturday and Sunday, 15 and 16 June between 10am and 4pm, visitors to the crematorium are invited to tie a blue ribbon to a memory tree in honour of a father or father figure they have lost.

There will also be a memory tree in the crematorium waiting room, on which cards can be attached which contain personal messages or tributes.

Wessex Vale 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.

Manager Lisa Johnson 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 Heaven 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.”
