The annual service for the bereaved will take place at Wilford Hill on Saturday 3 December. The service has special significance for those wishing to remember friends or family who died in Nottingham, but anyone wishing to attend will be very welcome.
The service will take place in the Main Chapel at Wilford Hill Southern Cemetery and Crematorium on Loughborough Road, West Bridgford, beginning at 10.30am. Following a welcome by the Sheriff of Nottingham, Councillor Jackie Morris, the service will be conducted by Father Michael Brown from the Church of the Holy Spirit, West Bridgford; the Rev Chris Hodder of St Paul’s Church, West Bridgford; Licensed Lay Reader Lesley Ball from A.W. Lymn, and Jane Turner of A.W. Lymn.
Light refreshments will be served in the West Chapel after the service, when those attending will be able to talk to members of the Cemeteries team.
The annual service is organised by Nottingham City Council Cemetery and Crematorium Service, and is sponsored again this year by funeral directors A.W. Lymn.
Councillor Dave Trimble, Nottingham City Council’s Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, said: “The annual service is often an important milestone for people who are bereaved, and many tell us of the comfort they find through attending. We are grateful for the ongoing sponsorship from A.W. Lymn, which allows us to add special touches such as a Christmas tree, choir and refreshments – all much appreciated by those who attend.”
