Paying tribute to Mothers at Mercia Forest Crematorium

Mercia Forest Crematorium is inviting people to visit to remember and pay tribute to loved ones they have lost in honour of Mother’s Day.

On Saturday 9 March, between 10am and 12noon, the crematorium’s chapel will be open for people to visit and spend peaceful periods of reflection and remembrance.

There will also be a memory tree with plaques which visitors will be able to write personal messages on, and there will be flowers available which can be placed within the crematorium’s grounds in honour of lost loved ones.

Mercia 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.

Manager Joanne Taylor said: “We know that occasions like Mother’s Day are when people can particularly feel the loss of a loved one, which is why we always like to offer something to enable people to pay tribute in a special way.

“Something else that visitors to our site can do is post a Mother’s Day card in our Letters To Heaven memorial post box, which we know has given people a sense of comfort and a feeling of connection to someone they have lost.

“Regardless of whether they’re newly bereaved or lost their loved one a while ago, or where their funeral took place, our Mother’s Day invitation is open to anyone who is looking for a quiet place of reflection and comfort at this special time of year.”

Anyone planning to purchase a memorial in honour of a loved one around the Mother’s Day period will be able to take advantage of a special offer of free personalisation – to make that memorial even more uniquely personal and extra special – up to the value of £500 (terms and conditions apply).

The offer runs between 26 February and 31 March 2024. Visit the crematorium’s website or call and speak to a member of the team there for more information.
