Service of Remembrance and Hope

We want to create a space for anyone grieving the loss of a loved one to be comforted in our ‘Services of Remembrance and Hope’. During these services there is a time to remember in the lighting of candles and a time to find hope in song, some prayers and in the gathering together with others travelling a similar journey.

Bereavement Support Group

Cemetery Volunteering

Over the course of the last several months many people have expressed an interest to get involved and make a contribution to the upkeep of the Cemetery – providing expert advice, participating in regular gardening and maintenance activities (e.g. painting, picking up rubbish) or using their skills to support future initiatives.
