Greenwood Cemetery

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Print

Greenwood Cemetery

How calm they sleep beneath the shade
Who once were weary of the strife,
And bent, like us, beneath the load
Of human life! The willow hangs with sheltering grace
And benediction o’er their sod,
And Nature, hushed, assures the soul
They rest in God. O weary hearts, what rest is here,
From all that curses yonder town!
So deep the peace, I almost long
To lay me down. For, oh, it will be blest to sleep,
Nor dream, nor move, that silent night,
Till wakened in immortal strength
And heavenly light!

Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, we are having to change the way we are running. We would appreciate where possible to do funeral arrangements over the phone. We are aware this is not ideal, neither is it the way we wish to be operating. Understandably due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are adopting these methods to be as compliant as possible with government guidance. This will also apply to the manner in how we are conducting the funerals, we will ensure to do our utmost to remain highly respectful as usual, with as many of our traditions still in place.

For the safety of our staff and yourselves, we are adapting daily to the guidelines set by the government and local authorities.

For any queries or concerns please do contact any of our offices or general enquires on 01252 616431.
