In Memory celebrations and remembrance events

At The Hospice of St Francis we understand the importance of celebrating life, remembering those who were dear to us and coming together to celebrate those who will always hold a special place in our hearts.

We invite you to join us for our hospice remembrance events, with all welcome. 

Light up a Life event

Led by our Head of Spiritual Care, Ray Ashley-Brown, our remembrance events are an opportunity to remember loved ones, whilst coming together to experience the companionship and community of others who have had similar experiences of bereavement.

Each service is a wonderful, inclusive occasion for all ages, with music, readings and refreshments. We welcome people of all faiths or no faith, and everyone is invited to attend, no matter how long ago their loss was. 

We will be announcing new dates for upcoming events so please check back to this page in the future or contact our In Memory Fundraiser Sarah Watson in for more information on or call on 01442 869555.
