Remembering Loved Ones

A special series of Christmas services has been arranged for the South Lanarkshire Crematorium in High Blantyre, dedicated to remembering loved ones.

The memorial service offers an opportunity for those who may have experienced bereavement at any time in the past to enjoy the support of others in an atmosphere of seasonal warmth and companionship.

Councillor John Anderson, chairman of community and enterprise resources, said: “We are very pleased to be able to once again offer the crematorium as a place of peace and memory at this special time of year.

“Our bereavement services team has given some time to thinking about how best it might support the memorial service which has always proved well attended in previous years.

“In recognition that for some, and perhaps particularly those in the most vulnerable groups, the thought of a crowd might be off-putting they have developed this alternative format.

“The Christmas memorial will offer a dignified, peaceful and personal way to remember loved ones and our crematorium team will be on hand to offer support if needed.”

The crematorium service room will open on Sunday, 5th December from 10am until 2pm.
