Christmas Memorial Service
At E F Edwards Funeral Directors, we understand how difficult this year has been for everyone, especially for families and friends who have lost someone dear to them during the pandemic.

As part of our service to those that we have had the privilege to care for, we hold a Christmas memorial service in memory of loved ones. While this hasn’t been possible this year, we have an online memorial service for families and friends.

The service has been recorded at the Lichfield Methodist Church and is led by Rev Roger Baker, Celebrant Mitchell West and our staff, Funeral Manager Scott Mills, Funeral Director Adrian Davies and Funeral Service Arranger Linda Owen, on behalf of all our colleagues.
