The annual service for the bereaved will take place at Wilford Hill Crematorium this week.

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.

It will take place in the Main Chapel at Wilford Hill Southern Cemetery and Crematorium, in Loughborough Road, West Bridgford, on Saturday 1 December at 10.30am.  

 Following a welcome by the Lord Mayor of Nottingham, Councillor Liaqat Ali, the service will be conducted by:

  • Father Michael Brown, from the Church of the Holy Spirit, West Bridgford
  • Reverend Chris Hodder, of St Paul’s Church, West Bridgford
  • Licensed Lay Reader, Lesley Ball, from A.W. Lymn funeral directors
  • 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 Nottingham City Council’s Cemetery and Crematorium team.

The annual service is sponsored again this year by A.W. Lymn.

Councillor Dave Trimble, Nottingham City Council’s Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Localities, 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.”
