Paying tribute to Mothers at Great Glen Crematorium

Great Glen 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 2.30pm and 4.30pm, the chapel will be open to anyone who wants to visit and have some quiet time for reflection and remembrance.

There will be a remembrance tree in the waiting room along with tags which people can write personal messages on, to be hung on the tree.

Great Glen 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 Aleksandra Harris 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. Paper and pens will be available on-site.

“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.
