The Clyde Coast & Garnock Valley Crematorium is opening its doors on Saturday, 9th November for a very special and inclusive Service of Remembrance in memory of those who have paid the ultimate price in the service of their country.

The service is open to all, regardless of faith and beliefs and backgrounds, and is being led by Jennifer Buchan, Humanist Chaplin from the University of Strathclyde.

The service will include flag bearers from local organisations, representatives from the Emergency Services, a piper, stories, visual images, music and a moment of silence for those that have fallen, and for those effected by conflict.

Poppy wreathes will be laid at the glass walled window in the beautiful Ceremony Hall, looking over the natural landscape towards Arran and small poppy wooden crosses may be placed in our Sleeping Warrior Garden of Remembrance, to remember loved ones.

The service begins at 11.00am on Saturday, 9th November, and Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available after the service, and the Clyde Coast & Garnock Valley Team invite you to come and join them for an inspiring moment of reflection and remembrance.

Philip Ewing, Manager of the Clyde Coast & Garnock Valley Crematorium said:

“We hope that our inclusive Service of Remembrance will help everyone, no matter what their belief, to come together to commemorate and remember their family, friends and comrades in a beautiful, inspiring and fitting location.”
