Pop-up Grief Café

Sunday 1st August 2021 – 10.00am – 12.30pm

Mortlake Crematorium in partnership with the Good Grief Trust, are holding a Pop-up Café on Sunday 1st August 2021 at Mortlake Crematorium between 10.00am & 2.30pm.

Pop Up Cafés were launched in 2019 to offer a friendly place out in the community to pop along and find others who may have been through a similar bereavement.

The purpose of the Good Grief Pop Up Café is to offer an umbrella of support in local communities and raise awareness of the Good Grief Trust online database which unite bereavement services across the country.

You are welcome to walk around our beautiful grounds, have a soft drink and cake and chat to our volunteers and others.

It is hoped that it is a way to connect grieving people with their local communities.  By sharing stories and meeting and talking to others, we can hopefully help each other find a way forward.

Volunteers are making scrumptious cakes, if there any are left over we will be taking them to vulnerable people in the community.

If you have a food allergy please let us know so we can have drinks and snacks available which are suitable.

Father’s Day

Sunday 20th June 2021

Father’s Day can be such a difficult day when you’re bereaved. Whether you’re a Dad who has lost a child, you’re missing your Dad, or a special person, it’s never an easy time. This year, as we are not able to hold our usual Father’s Day service in our Chapel so we have set up a dedicated online place to remember them.

On our Remembering Father’s page you can add a photo, and share a memory or message.  We want you to use this space to share your memories, and help to build a community, united in remembrance.

National Grief Awareness week every year

2nd -8th December every year

It is held to raise awareness of all aspects of grief and loss on a national scale

Our Christmas Christmas Remembrance Services were not held last December due to Covid restrictions.

Many visitors came and left a message on the Christmas trees in the cloisters and made a donation.

As part of National Grief Awareness week on Monday 7th December, those remembering the death of a baby/child were invited to pop into our chapel to light a candle and leave a message on the tree in the Chapel.

 

This year we are hoping that visitors to the Crematorium, Funeral Directors and Arrangers, celebrants, staff will be able to take part in a 5k walk/run in Richmond Park.  If you would like to be involved please contact us.   You may be remembering someone you love; a child, mother, father, Grandad, grandmother, uncle, aunt, sister, brother, friend, colleague . #shareyourstory #strongertogether

All of those at the Good Grief Trust have lost someone they love, so they want to help you find the support you need as quickly as possible
