The annual Albin’s Christmas Memorial Service will take place on December 6, at the Albin Memorial Garden in Southwark Park.
Simon Dyer, director of FA Albin & Sons, which has organised the event for sixteen years, said: “It’s something we do every year, and that our dad started.
“It’s to remember everyone we have lost this year, and in previous years – everyone who has lost someone is welcome to come.
“We have Christmas carols and a big fireworks finale. We’ve ministers from local churches giving readings and prayers. Afterwards people stay for mulled wine and mince pies.
“It’s happy and sad and emotional. Last year we had 1,600 people come along.”
The service will start at 7pm, with gates to the park open at 6pm.
Albin’s will also be offering guests the chance to write their late loved ones a message on a star, which will be placed together on the memorial garden Christmas tree.
Stars are available from Albins reception from November 1, or at the service.
