Ministers representing all faiths gathered at R H Fayers & Sons, which has recently relocated from Lynn’s Railway Road to 104 High Street, in order to bless the new premises.
The Service of Dedication was conducted by Reverend Canon Christopher Ivory from St Margaret’s and St Nicholas’, Father Peter Rollings, the Roman Catholic Dean of Lynn, Reverend Catherine Dixon, from London Road Methodist Church, and Mark Tyack, a civil celebrant. Also in attendance were West Norfolk Mayor and Mayoress and Reverend Canon Robert Fayers and David Fayers, the great grandsons of the founder.
Business manager Lee Nelson said: “The funeral home was originally located on Railway Road where it had been for over 60 years, however we decided to relocate to the High Street for the convenience of the families we serve.”
The funeral home was also opened to the public and guests to look at the new premises. A horse drawn hearse was on display.
