Families missing their mums or grandmothers are invited to attend special Mother’s Day memorial services at Northern Suburbs Memorial Gardens or Macquarie Park Cemetery on Sunday morning.

Attendees at the Northern Suburbs’ service will be invited to write a message to their mother or grandmother on cards which will be symbolically cremated after the service.

Family service supervisor Stewart Hilder said Mother’s Day could be difficult for those who had lost a mother or grandmother.

“Spending Mother’s Day alone after your mother or grandmother has passed away can be a painful experience, particularly for the recently bereaved,” Mr Hilder said.
