Father’s Day at Forest of Dean Crematorium

Westerleigh Group’s Forest of Dean Crematorium is inviting families to visit and commemorate the lives of their fathers and father figures.

It is hosting a special Father’s Day Moment of Reflection on Friday 17 June between 4pm and 6pm.

Visitors will be able to write a personal message on a memory card or chalk board in honour of their loved ones.

They will also be enjoy some quiet reflection time at the crematorium’s newly-unveiled raised flower beds.

Forest of Dean Crematorium is part of Westerleigh Group, the UK’s largest owner and operator of crematoria and cemeteries, with 37 sites in England, Scotland, and Wales, all set within beautifully landscaped gardens of remembrance which provide pleasant, tranquil places for people to visit and reflect.

Site Manager Hannah Giles said: “Father’s Day can be a particularly poignant time for those who have lost their father or father figure.

“Every year, we welcome many families to our grounds who come to lay flowers and commemorate their loved ones around Father’s Day.

“We hope that families will find comfort in their visit to us again this year.”

Visitors will also have the opportunity to make a donation to the Huntington’s Disease Association, which is Westerleigh Group’s corporate charity partner for 2022.

For those who wish to do something in remembrance on Father’s Day itself, the picturesque, peaceful grounds at Forest of Dean Crematorium will be open as usual on Sunday 19 June, between 8.30am and 8pm.
