A Christmas service of remembrance to commemorate those who have died will take place in December.

Thetford Town Council will host the service at the Cemetery Chapel in London Road on Friday, December 7, starting at 7pm.

The service will be lead by Robert Ogden and from Tuesday, December 4, a memorial Christmas tree will be in the chapel for messages for loved ones to be left.

The service will be non-religious and is open for anyone to attend.

A spokesman for the council said: 'Christmas can be a most wonderful time of the year but also one of sadness if you have lost a loved one.
