Haverhill Funeral Services Chapel of Rest Dedication
The Haverhill community came together for the East of England Co-op Funeral Services’ Chapel of Rest dedication on Thursday 23 February.
The service was led by Reverend Canon Graham Owen and Church Army Officer Captain Andrew Payne from St Mary the Virgin Church in Haverhill. Mayor of Haverhill, Councillor David Roach, also attended the service.
Managers of local care homes, hospices, representatives from charities, neighbours and other members of the funeral profession were all invited. Visitors had the opportunity to talk to the local funeral team over tea and cake at the warm and welcoming premises. They also had the chance to chat with the bereavement support counsellors and meet the civil celebrant.
Funeral Arranger, Chloe Billings, said: “I’m proud to have been welcomed to the Haverhill branch, where I can offer advice and guidance to local residents when they need it most. I enjoyed meeting members of the local community at the dedication service and encourage others to pop in and say hello in the future. Our doors are always open.”
