The annual ‘Black Cherry Fair’ has been taking place in the market town of Chertsey for many hundreds of years, and this year, local business Lodge Brothers Funeral Directors had a stall. But unlike most others on the Abbeyfields site, they weren’t selling anything!

District Manager, Richard Leachman, and one of his team of Funeral Arrangers, Tom Hoyles, gave away nearly 300 bottles of water to passers-by on what was another warm summer’s day.

Conversations did follow, many of them surrounding the topic of personal funeral planning.

Lodge Brothers has its own catalogue of bespoke funeral plans – pop into your local branch and ask the question!

A life remembered

On Friday 24th April the village of Bisley bid a traditional ‘farewell’ to one of its oldest residents, Mr Peter Fuller. Mr Fuller had lived for many years next to St John’s Church, Bisley. He died in Woking Hospice on 4th April aged 90 years. His beloved wife, Mollie, predeceased him in 2011.

Mr Fuller’s Funeral Service took place in St John’s Church, Bisley which was full to capacity with standing room only. A Royal British Legion Standard Bearer was also in attendance. The service was followed by a private cremation.

His coffin was borne from Lodge Brother Funeral Directors in Goldsworth Road, Woking to Bisley Church in a Horse Drawn Hearse following a route planned by Mr Fuller’s son, Richard.

St David’s Day Marked at Lodge Brothers & Wickendens Ealing

Ealing branch of Lodge Brothers & Wickendens marked St David’s Day this weekend with a colourful display of daffodils alongside the traditional Welsh flag, in memory of past clients of Welsh origin.

District Manager Paul Bye explains “It’s important that all our branches respect the multi cultural communities they serve and hang flags on as many public holidays as possible.

Funds Raised for Home Start by Lodge Brothers Walton

The staff at Lodge Brothers Walton were delighted to welcome Carol Hodges (Manager) and Gill Robinson (Family Support Coordinator) from the charity ‘Home Start’ to the branch, to present them with a cheque for £150 for monies raised with donations from the local community.

Both Ann McMurray (Branch Arranger) and Sharon Brunn (Relief Branch Arranger), made holly wreaths at Christmas time, which were available from the Walton branch for anybody who wanted to remember their loved one. Whilst it was not a requirement, people still generously made donations in return for taking a wreath home with them.

Ann said “It is a difficult time of year for many families who have lost a loved one, and therefore we wanted to help them by providing something special which could either be taken home as a table decoration, or even placed in memory of someone in a special place.”

Sharon chose the charity Home Start as the worthy cause to receive the monies raised.
