Dr Rob Marshall, Rector of Digswell, said: “I have contacted local funeral directors and told them to make sure families know that they can use our churches to hold fitting and dignified thanksgiving services for all members of the family and the wider circle of date once we are through the worst of this crisis and the current restrictions are lifted.
“The problem is that once a cremation has taken place there isn’t always an obvious venue without additional costs for a family to get together and celebrate a loved one’s life.
“We are committed to making sure that every family has that opportunity.”
