Bereavement… It can be a very difficult time and an equally difficult subject matter to talk about.
To assist in breaking the taboo, Trafford Council believes it is helpful to give people the opportunity to come together to share views and to see what goes on behind the scenes in your local crematorium and cemetery.
Trafford Bereavement Services has therefore organised an open day at Altrincham Crematorium and Dunham Lawn Cemetery on Sunday, 23 June, between 10.30am and 3pm.
The day will provide an opportunity for people to meet the Bereavement Services team and other organisations and services connected with the provision of funerals and memorials.
There will be tours of the crematorium and a number of exhibits and activities including calligraphy demonstrations, memorialisation and jewellery stalls.
