Christmas can be a wonderful time of the year but also one of sadness if you have lost a loved one. Celebrating Christmas after a death in the family can be one of the most difficult times of the year.
With these thoughts in mind, we will be holding our first service of remembrance at St. Mary’s Church, Stretton, on Saturday 30th November at 2.00pm.
The service is Multi-denominational and there will be an opportunity to light a candle and place a personal m...
We were honoured to sponsor and attend the Burton Mail Heroes Awards for the third year running.
The event is to celebrate and recognise people from East and South Staffordshire who have gone that extra mile for others or shown incredible courage and dedication to make a real difference.
It was a fabulous evening, with a total of 30 inspirational finalists present at the home of Burton Albion, the Pirelli Stadium, having to be whittled down to only 10 overa...
We have now totalled all the donations received from Murray’s Memory walk and would like to send a big thank you to all those who gave money on the day of sent it in afterwards, the final count was £274.
We made a trip to the Alzheimer’s Society to give them the cheque and they couldn’t thank us enough. Ollie Larkin, pictured here with Sue Barke, said “Just £30 can provide 250 microscope slides, used in labs to study the earliest changes that lead to dementi...
Murrays have joined forces with Findern Footpaths and Conservation Group to provide people with an opportunity to remember and talk about their loved ones whilst walking in the lovely village of Findern.
For many people weekends can be a difficult time when they are affected by the passing of a loved one. So, we would like to invite people to join us for a short walk on Saturday 28th September, with an opportunity to leave a message on our Memory Tree.

Murray's were honoured to attend the National Memorial Arboretum for the unveiling of the Catenian Memorial, to remember all those Catenians, their families and friends who suffered, were wounded or have given their lives in conflicts since their foundation in 1908.
This is a permanent memorial which was blessed on Saturday 13th July 2019 at the Arboretum in Staffordshire by the Archbishop of Birmingham, His Grace Bernard Longley.
On Sunday, 2nd June, Sue and Danny took on the gruelling challenge of completing the Summer Wolf Run to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society. For over three hours, they battled dozens of obstacles, pools of mud, treacherous rivers and a 10km run, all whilst being pummelled by rain! Somehow they managed to cross the finish line with a smile on their face, no doubt thanks to the generous donations they received from supporters.
In June, Murray’s will release their inner howl as some dedicated members of our team take part in the Wolf Run in Leicestershire. This is a fund-raising event involving a 10km run spanning across woods, obstacles, lakes and fields. Runners will face muddy ditches, towering walls and soaking slides, all in the name of their chosen charity.
The Murray’s wolf pack will include Sue and Danny - who have been training for the last few months - and they will be jo...
This week we had a heavy heart as we said goodbye to the wonderful Reverend Ian Whitehead, who is moving to another parish.
Murray’s has had the great pleasure of working with Ian for nearly twenty years as he began working in the parish (covering Rolleston, Anslow and Tutbury) in 1999, the very same year that Murray’s first opened its doors.
On Sunday 17th March, a few members of the Murray’s staff attended a party to celebrate Ian and to bid him farewell. T...
