A SIDMOUTH minister will lead a Christmas service of remembrance, to celebrate the lives and memories of loved ones, at East Devon Crematorium on Saturday, December 10 at 1pm.

The service, at the new crematorium, located just off the old A30 at Strete Ralegh near Whimple, will be led by the Reverend Robin Laird, with Geoff Wood, a civil celebrant, and Trudi Farmer, an interfaith minister, taking part.

Carols and readings will reflect on Christmas, and people can light a candle in memory of a friend or family member.

Personal tribute cards will also be available to hang on the chapel’s Christmas tree.

Mulled wine, mince pies, tea and cake, will be provided after the service and all are welcome.
