Funeral arrangements for Charley


Since my last announcement on this site, I have been inundated with the kindest messages of support and would like to sincerely thank everyone for keeping us all in your thoughts.

Charley’s funeral will take place at 1.30pm on Friday 28th April at St Nicholas Church, High Bradfield, Sheffield S6 6LG and everyone who would like to attend will be welcome. Charley will stay in our hearts as a truly colourful character and it was her request that at her funeral people would reflect this colour in their outfits instead of traditional black.

A few practical notes to bare in mind on the day. I anticipate that the funeral will be a busy occasion and with this in mind seats will be taken quickly. Parking is limited and will be an issue on the day so please allow time to find a space if you are driving to the church. The Old Horns Inn is a pub close to the church and would be a good place to meet people before the service.

Please be aware that mobile signal in the area is not good for some service providers.

Following the church service there will be a short, private service at the crematorium for family only.

The wake for family and friends will take place at Charley’s family home in Loadbrook and at Charley’s request will be full of smiles and chatter, G&Ts and cream teas.

Family flowers only please but anyone wishing to make a donation can do so to Martlet’s Hospice, who’s hospice at home team looked after Charley so well.

    I won’t be able to attend unfortunately, but sending my best wishes and will certainly have a G&T for her life and smile at the sky as I toast, as she requests. She was an amazing person and our hearts and thoughts go out to Jess and the family.
