A Central England Co-op Funeralcare spokesperson said: “We understand that Father’s Day can be difficult for many of us who have lost a loved one, whether more recently or further in the past. We want to create a moment to remember; a time and place for us all to come together and reflect on those who are no longer with us on this poignant day”.

“There are readings by our celebrant, Julie Tyler, and music, followed by candle-lighting and a moment of silence for reflection. You can join in by lighting a candle at home. Let’s remember our dads together.”
