Banksia Remembrance Services

Banksia offers bereaved families and friends the opportunity to participate in our Remembrance Services throughout the year. 

This service, which we run ourselves, provides an opportunity for family and friends to remember…to take some time, and to think about the person who had died. The service includes readings, music and an opportunity to light a candle in memory – it is not religious, it is not culturally specific and is appropriate for any age.

 After the service, our staff will be on-hand to chat to families and friends. If you would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact Banksia on 94550822.

Upcoming Remembrance Service Dates:

  • Thursday 29 April,
  • Thursday 19 August,
  • Thursday 9 December.
