Nelson Mandela hero and friend

Nelson Mandela known to the people of South Africa as Madiba

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was born in Transkei, South Africa on July 18, 1918. Mandela himself was educated at University College of Fort Hare and the University of Witwatersrand and qualified in law in 1942. He joined the African National Congress in 1944. He went on trial for treason in 1956-1961 and was acquitted in 1961.

From 1964 to 1982, he was incarcerated at Robben Island Prison, off Cape Town; thereafter, he was at Pollsmoor Prison, nearby on the mainland.

During his years in prison, Nelson Mandela’s reputation grew steadily. He was widely accepted as the most significant black leader in South Africa and became a potent symbol of resistance as the anti-apartheid movement gathered strength. He consistently refused to compromise his political position to obtain his freedom.

Nelson Mandela was released on February 11, 1990. After his release, he plunged himself wholeheartedly into his life’s work, striving to attain the goals he and others had set out almost four decades earlier. In 1991, at the first national conference of the ANC held inside South Africa after the organization had been banned in 1960, Mandela was elected President of the ANC while his lifelong friend and colleague, Oliver Tambo, became the organisation’s National Chairperson.

Nellie Rose Windsor Gets Her Wish with careful funeral planning

January 11th, 2013

It was July 2009 when Nellie Windsor first came into Hanworth Branch to discuss her unique Pre paid funeral plans. A lady that knew exactly what she wanted. Pre Paid Funerals and funeral planning just became simpler for Nellie with our help.

“Do you watch Emmerdale?” She asked Sue Hall the Funeral Arranger, as she looked at the pictures of the horse drawn hearses on the wall. “I want one like that, but smaller, I want a donkey & dray.”

It was clear that Nellie was going to need some bespoke arrangements!

Sue immediately got to work looking on line for someone that could help with a donkey & dray. Her first call was to David Mills of Stonehill Donkeys in Cockshutt, near. Ellesmere. David confirmed he was happy to make the arrangements on a long-term basis, so Sue informed a very excited Nellie that she would have her donkey.

This was obviously very important to Nellie, as during the course of the next three years, she would phone Sue to see how she was, and would also call David to ask how he and the donkeys were.

Sue commented, “Nellie was a larger than life character and the day of her funeral was a mixture of happiness and sadness. A donkey-drawn hearse was a first for Lodge Brothers, so I had to make sure everything was perfect for her – and on the day, the sight of David with Ginger the dray and his support team approaching, I knew that Nellie would be very happy and proud.”
