Paying tribute to Fathers at Cromer Crematorium

Cromer Crematorium is inviting people to visit to remember and pay tribute to their loved ones in honour of Father’s Day.

Between Monday 10 June and Friday 14 June, visitors can collect wooden cut-out flowers from the crematorium office, which can be coloured in, and names of those they have lost can be added with tags.

These flowers can then be placed on the memorial of someone within the crematorium’s grounds or taken home.

On Father’s Day itself, Sunday 16 June, the site is open all day for people to visit for periods of peaceful reflection and remembrance.

Cromer 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.

Westerleigh Group prides itself on providing exceptional care to the bereaved, the standards of which are inspected by the Federation of Burial and Cremation Authorities (FBCA) in England and Wales, and the Scottish Government.

Cromer Crematorium Manager Rodney Clark-Ward said: “Occasions such as Father’s Day can be particularly poignant for anyone who’s been bereaved of a paternal loved one.

“Our site provides the fitting and welcoming environment for anyone who is looking for a quiet place of reflection and contemplation.

“During their visit, guests can also leave a Father’s Day card in our Letters To Heaven memorial post box, which was installed several months ago to give people a feeling of connection with someone they can no longer be with.

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