Services of Remembrance – Barnes & Sons and Lodge & Wickenden

December 3rd, 2012

Lodge Brothers & Wickenden and Barnes & Sons of West London were proud sponsors of two special services, which took place at Mortlake Crematorium this Sunday 2nd December 2012. The first was a Service of Remembrance for Babies and Children, which was then followed by a Christmas Memorial Service.

The services were led by Canon Julian Reindorp and included Christmas Carols, Bible readings, poems and a roll of remembrance. Whilst the names were read out, stars were hung on a Christmas Tree supplied by Barnes & Sons Funeral Directors of Shepherds Bush.

Afterwards, all who attended were invited for light refreshments including mince pies and mulled wine, supplied by Waitrose.

Both services were well attended and provided a platform of support for grieving families who are struggling to come to terms with a loss.

For those that were unable to attend this service, you can visit Mortlake Crematorium any day of the week in the run up to Christmas and hang a message on the Memorial Christmas Tree. Your message can either be hung on the tree located in the main chapel or the Tree located by the crematorium office and waiting room.
