Final details for tomorrow

Maria’s funeral will be held at 2pm on Friday, 26th June 2015 at Fulham New (North Sheen) Cemetery, London. The address is:

Fulham New Cemetery
Mortlake Road/Lower Richmond Road

Maria loved people – working with them, helping them set their own direction, organising all the celebrations. If you knew her, and would like to say goodbye, we feel it is in her spirit that you should, if you are able, join us for the funeral service.

After the funeral, there will be a funeral reception in Bloom cafe/restaurant on Fulham Palace Road between 4pm – 6pm. We used to go for brunch there regularly. The address is: 399 Fulham Palace Road, Fulham, London, SW6 6TA.


The Obituary

We’re never actually been to a British funeral, so enlisted the help of the charming and thoughtful Candy and Deirdre. They’ve advised on all preparations, and have also ensured we are extremely well fed with cake and lasagnes. Much love to both.

One outcome of strategising is this obituary in today’s Saturday Times. Dad wrote it yesterday, and it was published today on p.82
