9am start leaves little time for service

Llewelyn Street, Penmachno


Following a very sincere service at the Greetland Methodist Chapel our lovely 86 year Aunty was blessed to her final repose at the Halifax Crematorium on Friday April 8.

We travelled 3 hours from mid-Wales and other family equally came from Cockermouth, Cumbria with a similar journey time. Apparently, on this day, the only normal time available at the Halifax Crematorium was 9.00am! How this equates with Church services and bereaved families is unclear.

Apparently their services do not normally work on Friday afternoon, [their quote] ... but in this instance their service could be available for an additional £150.00... Wow... and sadly accepted.

Halifax people... come and die in Wales... anytime... no extra charges!
