Christmas Memorial Service and Tree Blessing

As part of our continued support to our community, our funeral directors host an annual memorial service. Those who have lost loved ones can come into our service and place a memorial card on our Christmas tree, with their own message of remembrance. 

The memorial messages are then blessed at this special service, creating a truly personal memory for all those involved. Anyone is welcome and our friendly staff are on hand to assist you.

Easter Egg Appeal to Support Local Foodbank

This Easter 2017, we collected over 160 Easter eggs to donate to local causes. We kindly ask the local community to bring in Easter eggs to donate to the appeal.

Your kindness was much appreciated by all who received eggs donated by you - thank you.

Funeral Director Brings Clear Sound & Parking To Local Church

As part of our continued support within the community Lyndsay & Nicki Ellis of The Vale Funeral Service were privilaged to fund a brand new sound system costing just under £2000 for All Saints Church, Barry.


Lyndsay explains: Over the years we have noticed the changes regarding chosen music by families which refelcts on a loved ones genre or favourite artist / composer.


The kind donation came about when Lyndsay was conducting a funeral and having to provide their own sound system. Father kevin Lake, team vicar of All Saints Church, Barry mentioned that they were looking into a new system but would cost around £2000 . Immediately Lyndsay said that he could help, and with the amazing work by John Lewis of JPL Sound it has certainly made a difference.


Father Kevin explains : The system has transformed not just the liturgy and music within our church services, but also enhances the sound for the concerts, both classical, choral and solo.


Lyndsay & Nicki have not just made the sound system so clear but has also funded and donated funeral cones in order that cortege vehicles may park clearly outside the church. Lyndsay adds, that Parking is sometimes an issue and these cones, placed out on early morning for the day of the service will hopefully solve this issue. 


We are so privilaged to be able to provide these within our Rectorial Benefice, in order to continue to give loved ones and their families a true, personal and dignified service they truly deserve.
