In Memory

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

In Memory

A thousand times we needed you.

A thousand times we cried.

If love alone could have saved you,

you never would have died.

A heart of gold stopped beating;

two twinkling eyes closed to rest.

God broke our hearts to prove he only took the best;

never a day goes by that you’re not in my heart and my soul.

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.
