People from across the region are being invited to remember loved ones they’ve lost at a special Memorial Service this Christmas.

Mortons Funeral Directors, who have offices in Northfield, Rubery and Cotteridge, are
hosting their annual Tree of Light Memorial Service in a special marquee at their head office on Bristol Road South, Northfield, on Sunday 2nd December.

  • The event begins at 3pm, lasts for about 45 minutes and is followed by refreshments.
  • Opportunity to write a message of love on a Memorial Star, which will then be placed on Mortons’ giant Christmas tree.
  • People can join in with carol singing at the service – accompanied by the Band of the Droitwich Corps of the Salvation Army.
  • Helping the music along will be Lee Evans and Fiona Krober, who will be singing and playing the guitar.

Mortons, who were established in 1898 and still remains a family-run, independent funeral director,  hold the extremely popular event on the first Sunday in December every year – no invitation is needed and everyone is welcome to attend.

Sarah Case, Mortons’ assistant managing director, said: “Christmas is always such a poignant time of year for those who have lost someone close to them, but it’s also a time to give thanks and to reflect about those who are no longer with us.

“Having an opportunity to place a Memorial Star on the tree means those memories can
continue to shine out over the festive period. It’s a wonderful time of year to remember
those we have loved and lost, and we are privileged to help people share their memories.
The joining together in the act of remembrance and celebration brings comfort to

The event is always extremely popular, and seats are allocated on a first come, first served basis, so people are encouraged to arrive early to avoid disappointment.
