Elizabeth has informed us that her father asked for his funeral to be closed and she is respecting his wishes. It will be a very small ceremony and cremation at West Norwood cemetery. Her father had specifically requested to keep things simple.
Elizabeth understands that people would want to pay their respects and asks that a simple toast amongst friends that might think fondly of him would probably suffice. Keep things simple. In the end if it’s heartfelt – it counts.
