Pat’s funeral

Details for the funeral of Pat Cliff,

Friday 30th June 2017 at 5PM












The Service

Pat’s funeral will be at 5:00pm on Friday 30th June 2017. Please wear colourful clothes. The service will be held at the South Oxfordshire Crematorium and Memorial Park, on the A338 five miles north of Pat & Keith’s house in Grove. The Crematorium asks that people do not arrive by car before 4:45pm. From the responses we’ve had so far, it seems that quite a few people would like to come and so it might be a good idea for folk to car-share or take the bus to the Crematorium.

The No.31 Bus leaving Wantage at 16:10 and calling at various points on the way (e.g. Grove Green at 16:18) stops at the Crematorium at 16:27. Or the X30 leaves Wantage at 16:05, calls at stops in Grove, and gets to the Crematorium at 16:20. For the return journey to Grove the No.31 bus stops at the Crematorium at 17:45 (arriving at The Bell in Grove at 17:57) and the X30/N30 stops at the Crematorium at 17:58 getting to The Bell in Grove at 18:07.

Flowers are welcome (Pat loved flowers) but not expected, and we’ll donate them to a good cause afterwards. If instead you would like to make a donation to Pat’s favourite local charity, that’s Helen and Douglas House, website here:
