New Suffolk ‘Walk of Remembrance’

This year our three funeral homes in Beccles, Bungay & Halesworth are coming together to launch a new Suffolk ‘Walk of Remembrance’.

We are once again inviting families who have lost a loved one to join us this year to our annual event on Sunday 9th September.

“The walk around the Beccles  Marshes has always been received with such positive feedback from those who have previously joined us so we chose this to be the home of our new combined  Suffolk ‘Walk of Remembrance’ . The walk is a way for us here at Rosedale to give back to the many families that we have looked after but also to anyone who has been bereaved of a loved one” said Alison Storey, Funeral Administrator at Rosedale Beccles. “We hope that the whole family will come along and enjoy the popular Beccles Marshes walks, take in their peaceful surroundings and see the abundance of wildlife on the edge of this charming Waveney market town . Each walk will offer families and individuals the opportunity and time to reflect and remember their loved ones.”

There will be two circular routes again this year, a 3 mile walk and a shorter route of one mile which will both take you around the picturesque Beccles Marshes.

After a 1 minute silence has been acknowledged, a dove release will mark the start of the walks at 11.00am from the Information Point on the Quay. Following the walk, everyone is invited to Rosedale Funeral Home, 22 Hungate, Beccles to visit the Chapel of Rest where a special ‘Book of Remembrance’ for families to leave a message has been commissioned and the opportunity to light a candle.
