Mothering Sunday 2022

Mother’s Day, Sunday 27th March 2022

We are pleased to announce that this year will be opening our chapel between 10.30am – 12.30pm to provide our families with a place for commemoration and quiet reflection.

At 11am, we will be showing a virtual Service of Remembrance in two ways:

    1. On our chapel screen (no booking is required)

    2. Via Westerleigh Group YouTube channel (for anyone who cannot come to our crematorium on the day. Link to the service will be published here on Friday 25th March)
