Remembering mothers at crematorium memorial service

Posted onPosted on 21st Feb

Mansfield Crematorium is hosting a Mother’s Day Memorial Service on Sunday 10 March at 11am at its Thoresby Chapel.

This will be the first Mother’s Day-themed service, and it will be led by civic celebrant Jean Sharpe with several guest speakers, including crematorium manager and Registrar Nada Colclough, and James Smith, of W S Ingham & Son Funeral Directors.

The service is expected to last around 45 minutes.

People are invited to remember their lost loved ones by submitting images, which will be displayed during the service. If you would like an image to be displayed, email it to [email protected] before 5 March 2024. You should get an email confirming that your photos have been received.

Coun Andy Burgin, portfolio holder for Environment and Leisure at Mansfield District Council, said: “Mother’s Day is a sensitive and poignant time for many people in the district as they come together with friends and family to remember loved ones.

“I hope this new type of service provides some comfort to families and allows them to pay a personal tribute to their loved ones.”

The Book of Remembrance will also be open at the crematorium on Mother’s Day from 10am to 4pm. The crematorium grounds will be open for members of the public to lay wreaths outside.

Mansfield Crematorium is managed and operated by a joint committee comprising representatives from Mansfield, Ashfield and Newark and Sherwood district councils.
