Attleborough Funeral Service's Chapel of Rest Dedication

In this section

The community of Attleborough came together for the dedication service of the East of England Co-op Funeral Services’ Chapel of Rest on Attleborough High Street on Thursday 26 January.

The dedication was led by Reverend Jacqui Horton, Minister at the Attleborough Methodist Church.

Other guests included those from local care homes, hospices, representatives from charities, neighbours and other members of the funeral profession. Visitors took the opportunity to talk to the local funeral team over tea and cake at the warm and welcoming premises. They were also able to chat with the bereavement support counsellors and meet the civil celebrant.

Funeral Arranger, Sally Blundell, said: “People have been so welcoming since we opened our doors in November and I was delighted to see such a high turnout at the dedication service. The work we do is at the heart of the community and we’re proud to help local residents in their time of need.”
