Mary has advised that Rod's funeral service will take place at the Church of St. Thomas Becket, Chapel-en-le-Frith Monday 11th April at 1315hrs after a private cremation. All are welcome and there will be refreshments at a local hostelry afterwards. The church is in the centre of Chapel and the tower is visible as you approach the town.
Mary also asked me to pass on her appreciation of all the kind messages she has received from those that knew and worked with him.
Some indication of numbers that might appreciate a sandwich would be appreciated by Mary and I offered to advise so if you could let me know next Tuesday I will pass approximate numbers on to her.
