“This service provides a chance for people to not only pay tribute to their loved ones but also be in the company of other people who are in a similar situation, which in itself can be a source of comfort.

“We know, from feedback we’ve had in previous years, that the service brings some solace and peace to local people at this time of year.”

It is free to attend and no advanced booking is needed.

The service will include a photo slideshow and anyone who plans to attend can send a photo of their loved one to be included in it.
