“In these times where funerals are restricted, our chance to support people during bereavement is limited.

“So, we wondered if we could revive an old tradition that would show people that their loss is noticed and shared by us all?

“It would mean the world to families in a time of sadness.

“This message comes from all funeral directors in UK.”

The same message is being carried on social media from other Funeral Directors.
