Join Cardiff Bereavement Services this Easter to remember the lives of those dear to us. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

An ecumenical Palm Sunday Memorial Service, to which all are welcome, will be held at the Wenallt Chapel at Thornhill Crematorium on Sunday 9th April 2017. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The service, conducted by Rev. Michael Witcombe, will begin at 2pm. Deborah Morgan Lewis will be leading the singing and the service will conclude at approximately 3pm. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

A collection will be held at the end of the service in aid of Tŷ Hafan, one of the UK’s leading paediatric palliative care charities. Tŷ Hafan offer comfort, care and support to life-limited children, young people and their families in the hospice, in the community and in their home. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Bob Derbyshire, said: “This service is a chance for people of all faiths to come together and pay their respects to their loved ones. We know the service brings a lot of comfort to people, so it’s fitting that this year’s collection will support the work done by charity Tŷ Hafan – an organisation whose valuable work enables so many families to make the most of the precious time they have left together.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Visitors are invited to place a memorial card with a personal message in memory of loved ones when they arrive at the chapel onto a memory board which will be presented during the act of remembrance. Refreshments will be available at the end of the service. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
