Farthing Funeral Service is delighted to be sponsoring a special Remembrance Day concert taking place on Sunday 13 November at Ipswich Corn Exchange.
Beginning at 4pm, the programme of much-loved classics will be played by Suffolk Philharmonic Orchestra. ‘A Tribute to the Fallen – A Celebration of Freedom’ will include recognisable pieces of music such as Dvorak’s New World Symphony, also known as the tune from the Hovis TV advertisement, and Rossini’s William Tell Overture – or the ‘Lone Ranger’ theme tune.
We will be holding an Open Morning at our Ipswich Office, Deben House on Wednesday 20th May, from 10.00am until 1.00pm. This is part of Dying Matters Awareness Week, which this year runs from 18th – 25th May.
Once a funeral service has taken place, there is a perception that we should be able to ‘get back to normal’. In reality, if we have lost someone very close to us, then life will never be the same again – it will be different. Over time we go through the long process of bereavement, and we still think of the one we have lost a great deal. It can be helpful to have a time and place where we can go, and where it is alright to acknowledge that we are still grieving, to be open about our low times and not to have to put on a brave face.
