Bereavement services to be showcased at exhibition

Rugby Editorial 24th Aug, 2019   0

RAINSBROOK Cemetery and Crematorium will host a funeral exhibition next month.

At the exhibition, organised by Rugby Borough Council (RBC), visitors can speak with experts from a range of bereavement services.

Exhibitors include funeral directors, stone masons, solicitors, florists and caterers, while visitors can find out about the benefits of funeral plans and the range of coffins and memorials on offer.

The exhibition also includes information about bereavement support, religious services and civil funerals.

Visitors can tour the crematorium and its Green Flag Award-winning grounds, and speak to members of the council’s bereavement services team.

RBC environment and public realm spokesman Coun Howard Roberts said: “Making arrangements for a funeral following the loss of a loved one can be incredibly difficult, so it’s comforting to know a wide range of professional services can help to make the process a little easier.

“The funeral exhibition gives residents an opportunity to find out about these services while exploring the facilities at Rainsbrook and exploring the cemetery and crematorium’s award-winning grounds.”

The Ashlawn Road site, which overlooks the Rainsbrook Valley, was built by Rugby Borough Council and Daventry District Council, and opened in the spring of 2014. Its landscaped grounds include memorial gardens and an Armed Forces Memorial Wall.

Rugby Borough Council’s bereavement services team, which runs Rainsbrook, has been awarded the ‘gold standard’ under the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management’s Charter for the Bereaved.

The exhibition takes place on Saturday September 7 from 10am to 3pm.
