Coun David Mar­ren, chair­man of Or­bitas Be­reave­ment Ser­vices, which runs the coun­cil owned ceme­ter­ies and cre­ma­to­ria in Cheshire East, said: “I am pleased that we are able to of­fer such a spe­cial way for peo­ple to re­mem­ber their loved ones.

“This is a beau­ti­ful art in­stal­la­tion that cel­e­brates the mem­o­ries of those we have loved and lost in a re­spect­ful and el­e­gant way.

“It will pro­vide a fo­cus for fam­ily and friends who wish to have a me­mo­rial at the cre­ma­to­rium.”
