Cam Valley Crematorium in Great Chesterford will stream a special Father's Day tribute service on Sunday (June 20).

Site manager Claire Butcher said: “Like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day can be a poignant time for those who have lost loved ones.

“We are streaming this service to bring some comfort to people and to enable them to feel that they are remembering their lost loved ones in a special way despite the lockdown restrictions."

The service at 11am will be broadcast from Vale Royal Crematorium in Cheshire and include readings and music.

Families have sent in three words, which remind them of their fathers, which will be compiled into a word cloud at the end of the broadcast.

See for the service. It will also be available later on Westerleigh Group’s YouTube channel.
