Families will be able to lay flowers and remember their loved ones during a private service.

A football team is presenting a memorial garden to the families whose loved ones’ ashes were uprooted during renovations.

On Armistice Day, the Ipswich Town Football Club will formally unveil the garden prior to its home match against Swansea City.

The ashes buried there were “unavoidably” disturbed by renovation work at the Portman Road pitch.

Mark Aston, chief executive of Ipswich Town FC said: “The design is a beautiful one and something we can be very proud of.”

The Garden of Remembrance will sit at the corner of the Sir Alf Ramsey and Cobbold stands.

It was created after renovation works at the Portman Road “unavoidably disturbed” ashes interred on the pitch.

The ashes have been relocated and integrated into the new garden, where pots with the names of departed loved ones are located.

It was “important” for the club, according to Mr. Aston, and he was “delighted” that it was now open.

“As a club, we can take great pride in this beautiful design,” he remarked.

“We are looking forward to welcoming the families of those whose ashes were previously interred at the stadium for next weekend’s service.”

On Saturday, November 11 at 13:00 GMT, the garden will formally open with a liturgy for family members conducted by club chaplain Rev Canon Kevan McCormack.
