A wonderful new service for your ancestors in Cornwall!
Louise Hollick created a delivery service to take flowers or other tokens of remembrance to resting-places of friends/family buried in mid and west Cornwall.
Book your request online at http://www.attendservices.co.uk specifying the location, requested week of delivery and the choice of token to be delivered – flowers (some grown locally), painted stones or potted plants are all available. The journey is made to the location in the week requested, photos are taken of the site before and after the gift is in place, and write a letter (typically an A4 page in medium text) describing the visit, so that the giver has a sense of having been involved in the process. A text and photos are sent to the giver, who has a lasting memento of the location, and a feeling of connection with the place. For each delivery, a £1 donation is made to the funds of the churchyard visited (or a donation to Cornwall Hospice, if the setting is one managed by Cornwall Council) and I donate to a charity planting trees on Dartmoor to offset the carbon emissions of my journey. For questions contact Louise through her website.
California Cornish Cousins is a 501(c)7 nonprofit social organization.
Our Annual Gathering is held in June, often at mining locations on historic Highway 49.
An annual Fall Luncheon is held in October in Northern, Central and Southern California locations.
