Remembrance Day at Great Glen Crematorium

Great Glen Crematorium will open its chapel on Friday 11 November for an hour of quiet reflection as a mark of respect for Remembrance Day.

The chapel will be open to everyone between 10.30amand 11.30am, with a two-minute silence being observed at 11am.

A wreath will be laid next to the Covid-19 memorial within the crematorium grounds and the last post will be played.

Poppies will also be sold, in aid of the Royal British Legion.

Great Glen 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 Aleksandra Harris said: “Remembrance Day is a time when so many people pause to think about all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

“Our peaceful and tranquil site is a fitting place for people to visit and make their own remembrance. All are welcome.

“We wanted to do this as part of our continuing efforts to play a positive role in local community life and to engage with the people who live in the area surrounding our beautiful site.”
