A firm which is part of independent funeral directors Wathall’s has created a lasting memorial at a church, which commemorates the lives lost during the coronavirus pandemic.

A rockery has been installed at The Community Church in Main Street, Stapenhill, along with an engraved slate plaque created and donated by Art Stone Memorials, a firm which specialises in creating and renovating graveside memorials across the Midlands.

During the pandemic, the church offered to place crosses in its front garden with the name and photograph of the loved one who had died.

However, the church wanted to create a more permanent reminder of those who passed.

Art Stone Memorials showroom manager Amy Lamb said: “As someone who has been born and bred in Stapenhill, I know just what a strong sense of community there is here, and we were delighted to support The Community Church in their bid to create a lasting memorial.

“The past two years have been particularly difficult for those who have lost loved ones and then not been able to pay their respects and celebrate their lives as they would have wished.

“We hope that this memorial will bring comfort to local families who are still coming to terms with their loss.”
