Op de begraafplaatsen en bij de crematoria in Bergen op Zoom en Roosendaal moet elk jaar een bijeenkomst rond Allerzielen zijn.
Naar voorbeeld van Allerzielen Alom, maar dan in eigen beheer uitgevoerd.
Dat is het streven van Bram Hommel, algemeen directeur van Stichting Crematoria en Begraafplaatsen Zoom- en Zegestede. Bergen op Zoom kende twee jaar terug Allerzielen Alom. Een kunstproject rond Allerzielen. Vorig jaar vond dat in Roosendaal plaats. Dit jaar zijn begraafplaats en crematorium aan de Mastendreef in Bergen op Zoom het decor voor een stemmige bijeenkomst. In Roosendaal is alleen een viering.

The council decided on the move to avoid having to find at least £6.6m in the next five years to invest in the service to meet emissions targets and to find new burial plots.
