Sirhowy Valley Crematorium to host its first Christmas Service 

The team at Sirhowy Valley Crematorium can’t wait to welcome local families to the site’s first Christmas Carol and Remembrance Service, which takes place on Wednesday 15 December at 7pm.  


The service provides a valuable opportunity for families and friends to come together in the on-site chapel and remember their loved ones in the run up to Christmas. 


But for those who still feel uncomfortable about social gatherings – or who are not able to visit the chapel in person for a variety of reasons – there is the opportunity to watch a webcast of the service, so nobody misses out. 


Sirhowy Valley Crematorium opened in January 2021. 


It is part of Westerleigh Group, the UK’s largest independent owner-operator of crematoria and cemeteries, with 35 sites across England, Scotland and Wales, all set within beautifully-landscaped gardens of remembrance which provide pleasant, peaceful places for people to visit and reflect. 


Jon Deacon, Site Manager at Sirhowy Valley Crematorium, said: “We are so pleased to be able to welcome families into our chapel for our first Christmas Carol and Remembrance Service. 


“Those who do attend in person will be able to write special messages in honour of their lost loved ones and these labels will be hung on our Christmas Tree. 


“We know that not everyone is able to attend in person. Some may have health or mobility issues, or simply live too far away and not have any transport, so we are webcasting the service, too, so that everyone can join in and remember their loved ones in the run up to Christmas. 


“There will be refreshments available for those who do attend, and no advance booking is required. 


“Attendees will also have the chance to write personalised messages in honour of loved ones onto memory tags which we will provide; these will then be used to decorate a Christmas tree within the chapel.”
