J B Hall bless their tree at Christmas

On Wednesday 15th December, J B Hall Funeral Directors of Wokingham invited clients into their funeral homes to attend their Christmas tree blessing service. The service was being held in memory of those who had lost someone throughout the past year.

The blessing was led by Reverend David Hamblin of Cross Church, Camberley. Clients who attended the service were invited to place personal messages and memory cards onto the tree.

Reverend Hamblin commented “I was delighted to see a number of J B Halls clients attend their blessing and hang their memorial stars onto the tree during a short service of remembrance and blessing thus helping them in their grieving.”

The team at J B Hall including Funeral Co-ordinator Linda Lawton commented “It was a pleasure to be able to invite our families back into our funeral home to attend our blessing service and place their memorial cards onto our tree. At this time of year, it is important to remember the loved ones whom we have lost, and I was delighted to be able to organise this special service for our many families.

Whilst arranging funerals for families in the Wokingham area, Linda also studies part-time for a degree in funeral services at the University of Bath. Linda concluded “I was really honoured to be chosen to be one of the first students to study for a foundation degree in Funeral Services at the University of Bath. The course covers a whole range of subjects including the history of the funeral trade, through to how to help with the grieving and bereaved; all of which enables me to give a premier funeral service to our many families.”
