We felt really honoured to be invited back to sing at this heartfelt ceremony at Crewe Cemetery this year. Unfortunately, due to illness there were fewer singers in our contingent than normal, but we still hope that we provided the songs and music you need to help remember those who have passed as we approach Christmas this year.
Wishing you all happy memories of the loved ones who are sadly no longer with us, and a beautiful Christmas and New Year ahead.
Love from us all at MicWire.
MicWire are looking forward to performing at the Crewe Cemetery Open Day on Saturday 15th September. It’s an important event for the Cemetery as they are undergoing a big renovation project to upgrade the facilities for bereaved families in Cheshire to use. The scheme is to cost 1.3m and planned works are to improve visitor comfort by extending the existing building, increasing the space and seating indoors as well as installing a hearing loop. The car park capacity will also increase.
The team have also recently digitised the burial records meaning that families can now electronically search for ancestors and family members.
The aim of the event is to raise public awareness of what services are available from Orbitas and local funeral directors.
Times: The Open Day will run from 11:00 until 14:30. The choir will be singing during the “Golden Memories” service starting at 14:00.
Address: Crewe Cemetery & Crematorium, Badger Avenue, Crewe, CW1 2NA

P.S. Death can be regarded as a taboo subject or we may avoid talking about death because it makes us uncomfortable. Grief surrounding death is a natural feeling and can cause a multitude of emotions, which may be experienced very differently from person to person. There is no set time within which anyone is to grieve, and no set way to do it. If you have experienced loss of a loved one, remember that you are not alone in your sadness.
If you or someone you know needs help with emotions associated with grief and loss, here are some suggestions of where to find some healthy and comforting support:
