People will be able to light a candle in memory of a loved one at Bushbury Crematorium's annual Christmas Memorial Carol Services.

The uplifting ceremonies, which are being held on Sunday 14 December, 2014, aim to bring comfort to people who have lost someone dear to them.

Those taking part will be invited to light a candle and attach a personal message for a family member or friend to the Christmas tree in Bushbury Crematorium's West Chapel.

The Christmas Memorial Carol Services will be led by members of the New Cross Hospital Chaplaincy Team, with the first beginning at 1pm and a second at 3pm. Light refreshments will be served afterwards.

Councillor John Reynolds, Wolverhampton City Council's Cabinet Member for City Services, said: "These are always very uplifting events which give people an opportunity to remember loved ones who are sadly no longer with them."

The services are free, though tickets, which are available now, must be reserved in advance. For more information, please call Bushbury Crematorium on 01902 556070.
