FAMILIES are now able to pay tribute to their loved ones with a special audio-visual service at Distington Hall Crematorium.

The crematorium has recently introduced the new system which allows music, photographs and videos to be played on screens during the funeral service.

The images are displayed on two large screens in the chapel, and it has so far proven a popular addition to the service which allows guests to remember special events and times in the person's life.

An example of a visual tribute can be viewed on Copeland Council's Facebook page.

Anyone who is interested in learning more about this service should call Copeland Council's Bereavement Services team on 01946 830561 or email distingtonhalladmin@copeland.gov.uk.

Further information is also available through local funeral directors.
