Torbay Cemetery & Crematorium is inviting families to remember fathers and father-figures next month and has a number of special ways to help them do just that. On Sunday 18 June – Father’s Day itself – between 9.30am and 1pm, local people are being invited to visit the crematorium and use the paper and envelopes provided to write a personal message which can be placed in the Letters to Loved Ones memorial post box.
Visitors will also be able to collect a commemorative rose and either place it within the grounds or take it home with them, they can light a candle in memory of their loved one, and write a message on a tag which is placed on a memorial tree.
As Father’s Day is often a time when many people are thinking more intently about their loved ones and look for ways of remembering them longer term, families can also take advantage of a very special offer.
The crematorium is offering 10% off all new memorial purchases, including their personalisation (if purchased in the same transaction) between 1 June and 2 July 2023.
The offer is available towards the entire purchase, including the lease of a memorial plot, a memorial itself as well as its personalisation (terms and conditions apply), ensuring that families are able to benefit from the contribution across all elements of their memorial purchase and choose a memorial that truly reflects their loved one.
Torbay Cemetery & Crematorium is part of Westerleigh Group, one of the UK’s largest independent owners and operators of crematoria and cemeteries, with 37 sites in England, Scotland, and Wales, all set within beautifully landscaped gardens of remembrance which provide pleasant, peaceful places for people to visit and reflect.
Stephen Ainsworth, Manager at Torbay Cemetery & Crematorium, said: “Father’s Day can be a particularly poignant time for those who have lost their dad or father-figure.
“More and more people are discovering that our crematorium is not just somewhere they come to in order to attend a service but is a fitting place to visit whenever they wish to remember their lost loved ones.
“Specific days such as Father’s Day are times when emotions can come to the fore, and when losses can be felt more than at other times, so we hope that visiting us will bring comfort to those who need it.
“And, of course, if they are thinking of creating a more permanent memorial, our special offer can also help make their ideas become a reality and provide a unique and personal tribute to any loved one they have lost.”
