Love Lives Beyond the Tomb

And earth, which fades like dew:
I love the fond,
The faithful, and the true.
Love lives in sleep:
Tis happiness of healthy dreams:
Eve‘s dews may weep,
But love delightful seems.
Tis seen in flowers,
And in the morning‘s pearly dew;
In earth‘s green hours,
And in the heaven‘s eternal blue.
Tis heard in Spring
When light and sunbeams, warm and kind,
On angel‘s wing
Bring love and music to the mind.
And where‘s the voice,
So young, so beautiful, and sweet
As Nature‘s choice,
Where Spring and lovers meet?
Love lives beyond the tomb,
And earth, which fades like dew:
I love the fond,
The faithful, and the true.

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.
