Hellesdon Funeral Service's Chapel of Rest Dedication
The community in Hellesdon came together for the dedication service of the East of England Co-op Funeral Service's Chapel of Rest on Friday 27 January.
The dedication was led by Reverend Louise Alder, Minister at St Mary's and St Paul's Church in Hellesdon.
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, Frances Tallent, said: “It was great to see so many friendly faces at the dedication service. We’ve really enjoyed getting to know members of the community so far and we’re proud to be able to help local residents when they need it most.”
