Cromer Funeral Service's Chapel of Rest Dedication
Local dignitaries came together with the Cromer community, for the dedication service of the East of England Co-op Funeral Services’ Chapel of Rest on Garden Street on Wednesday 25 January.
Local Councillor David Pritchard officially opened the branch with sincere words, whilst the dedication was led by Reverend Jennie Hodgkinson, Assistant Minister at the Cromer Parish Church with St Martin’s.
Other guests included local care home managers, hospices, representatives from charities, neighbours and 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.
Mary Wilson, Funeral Arranger and Branch Manager said: “It was fantastic to see so many faces at the dedication service. Since we opened our doors, the community has been nothing but welcoming. We are proud to provide a service to the local community in its time of need.”
