Funeral of Dr Alan Howard 16th July 2020

The funeral of Dr Howard is on the 16th July 2020 starting at 1pm BST. The service will be live streamed and can be viewed through the area below. After the funeral, the video of the service will be available through the same area. The restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic mean that the congregation is limited to only 30 invited people and it is not possible for them to sing. Alan wanted the format of the service to follow that of his wife Grace Howard who died in 2008. Alan is to be buried in the same grave. Recordings of the four hymns will be played and during the Ave Verum, the live stream and video will show pictures from Alan’s life.

The family ask that any donations be made through this Just Giving page. Donations will go towards domestic facilities at the church.
