Father’s Day at Basildon and District Crematorium

Westerleigh Group’s Basildon and District Cemetery & Crematorium is inviting families to visit and commemorate the lives of their fathers and father figures.

A special Father’s Day Service of Remembrance is taking place in the Gardenside Chapel on Thursday 16 June at 6pm.

During the service, visitors will be able to place a heart in memory of their loved one onto a memory tree and light refreshments will be provided after the service.

Basildon and District Cemetery & Crematorium is part of Westerleigh Group, the UK’s largest owner and operator of crematoria and cemeteries, with 37 sites in England, Scotland, and Wales, all set within beautifully landscaped gardens of remembrance which provide pleasant, tranquil places for people to visit and reflect.

Site Manager Adam Mayers said: “Father’s Day can be a particularly poignant time for those who have lost their father or father figure.

“Every year, we welcome many families to our grounds who come to lay flowers and commemorate their loved ones around Father’s Day.

“We hope that families will find comfort in their visit to us again this year.”

For those who are not able, or who do not wish, to attend in person, the service will be made available online.

They can access it by visiting https://watch.obitus.com and inputting the username soro3856 and the password 838819.

Visitors will also be able to make donations to Huntington’s Disease Association (HDA), which is Westerleigh Group’s corporate charity of the year.

For those who want to spend some time in quiet reflection on Father’s Day itself, the picturesque, peaceful, grounds will be open as usual on Sunday 19 June.
