A Star In Memory

As we enter the festive period, we understand this time of year can be very difficult when going through a bereavement. Christmas is often a time when loved ones come together and celebrate, but it is also a time when we miss those who we have loved and lost the most. It’s a time when their absence is strongly felt.

Once again, we are sponsoring Christmas trees in the churches of St Andrew’s Alexandra Park, at St Martin’s Church in Gospel Oak and in the Christmas Tree Festival at All Saint’s Church, Child’s Hill. We are providing an opportunity for our families, and members of the parishes, to write and hand a star in  memory of their loved ones on their preferred tree. The name can be written alone or accompanied by a short message.

Many people took the opportunity to write on a star last year and told us how comforting they found it to see their loved ones’ name hung on the tree. Here are just some of the responses we have received.

“I think it’s a wonderful idea and would love to take part”

“I think it’s a brilliant way of remembering our loved ones”

This year, All Saints’ Church will be holding a Grand Opening of their festival on 9th December 2023 from 3pm – 6pm, and the other trees will be up from 18th December. All the trees will remain in place throughout the Christmas season should people wish to go to find their star or to hang one. You are welcome to drop into our branches at Golders Green, Kentish Town and Muswell Hill to write a star if you are unable to reach one of the churches.

I can't thank Levertons enough for their part in helping us organise my mother's funeral. It was a very difficult time and Deborah guided us calmly through all the things we needed to do and put them into place seamlessly. She found us a wonderful celebrant who did my mum proud and with her help we managed to include everything we wanted in the service. I felt that Deborah really took time to listen to our wishes and sensitively put them into place. All the little details were taken care of by Levertons, the flowers looked beautiful, and everything ran smoothly on the day.

My sister and I were very pleased with Levertons and the way they organised my mother’s funeral. The coffin and the flowers were beautiful and every detail thought through. We were also impressed with the professional and compassionate attitude. Nothing jarred the poignant ceremony and we have a wonderful memory of our farewell to our dear mother. Thank you Lorna.

Drew and his team provided an exemplary service. Support before and during the service took a massive pressure off our family as we planned and delivered our mother's funeral.

My father's funeral was conducted with great care, dignity. Lorna was professional and respectful. I will be recommending Levertons to family and friends.

Leverton’s support their clients very well from preparing for the funeral to the event itself. A pre-existing funeral plan laid the groundwork, but cannot anticipate everything …not least Mum had died outside London and Kathryn then guided us with considerable sensitivity through the practical options from collecting her, to service options, flowers, visiting the chapel of rest etc. Despite the additional challenges they faced and the extra anxieties for us as we neared Xmas, preparing for an early Jan funeral, Kathryn kept us calm and made us feel we were in safe hands. We were. The funeral went perfectly to plan…the entire team’s composure was well-judged and in keeping with the professional but still warm service you receive from everyone at Leverton’s. They organised my Dad’s funeral nearly two decades ago and their standards remain as impeccable as they were then. Thank you so much to you all for helping us to make Mum’s last “occasion” just the best it could be.

The service was as I wished. Thank you so much for your assistance and guidance and your understanding from the outset back in October. I was very grateful for the presence of yourself and the chapel attendant, in running through the service beforehand. Please extend my thanks to everyone involved, the transfer of the coffin to the chapel was very dignified, something that Bill would have been very pleased with indeed. So, thank you, Lorna, to you and your colleagues. Know always that the vocation you have chosen matters, it makes a difference to have someone walking beside you at this point in the journey.
