Abbotsfield Tree of Remembrance


A 'Tree of Remembrance' will be displayed in the Reception Office of Abbotsfield Funeral Directors in Cantilupe Road, Ross-on-Wye from Monday 14th March.

During the two week period before Easter and until Friday, 2nd April, you are invited to visit and hang an Easter tag on the tree in memory of loved ones.

The Easter Egg shaped tags have been made by local children and are decorated one side and left blank on the other for messages to be written. You are also invited to make an entry in the Memorial Book, which is placed in the Chapel of Rest.

The Reception Office will be open between 9 am and 4 pm weekdays. There is no charge for the tags, but if desired, charity donations may be made.

For further information, you are welcome to contact Abbotsfield's Family Care Advisor, Hilary Jones on 01531 636666.
