Paying tribute to Fathers at Babworth Crematorium

Babworth Crematorium is inviting people to visit to remember and pay tribute to their loved ones in honour of Father’s Day.

On Friday 14 June the crematorium chapel will be open between 3pm and 5pm for families to visit and spend some quiet time to reflect and remember.

Visitors will be able to light commemorative candles and make personalised pictures cards which will be placed on a Remembrance Board.

The screens inside the chapel will feature a slideshow during the two-hour period, featuring pictures of fathers or father figures who have passed away.

If anyone wants to submit a photograph to be included in the slideshow, they should send it to, with ‘Father’s Day Slideshow’ in the subject line of the email by 10 June.

Babworth Crematorium is part of Westerleigh Group, one of the UK’s largest independent owners and operators of crematoria and cemeteries, with 40 sites in England, Scotland, and Wales, all set within beautifully landscaped gardens of remembrance which provide pleasant, peaceful places for people to visit and reflect.

Westerleigh Group prides itself on providing exceptional care to the bereaved, the standards of which are inspected by the Federation of Burial and Cremation Authorities (FBCA) in England and Wales, and the Scottish Government.

Manager Amanda Carr said: “Occasions such as Father’s Day can be particularly poignant for anyone who’s been bereaved of a paternal loved one.

“Our site provides the fitting and welcoming environment for anyone who is looking for a quiet place of reflection and contemplation.

“During their visit, guests can also leave a Father’s Day card in our Letters To Heaven memorial post box, which was installed several months ago to give people a feeling of connection with someone they can no longer be with.

“Regardless of whether they’re newly bereaved, lost their loved one a while ago, or where their funeral took place, our Father’s Day invitation is open to anyone who is looking for a place of comfort at this special time of year.”
