Rev Scott then took the service, with well-known carols, readings and singing from soloist Alison Chambers.

The service included a time for reflection, where families were invited to light a floating candle in memory of their loved ones who have died.

Families are also invited to write a special message on a star that is then hung on the remembrance Christmas tree on the company’s premises.

Shona Williamson told the Chronicle: “We believe that the comfort and strength that our families get from this service is a great benefit for them, and we will continue to arrange this service at Christmastime as we also get comfort from it.”
