Funeral Information

We have been touched as a family by how many people wish to come to Wendy’s funeral. We would love you to be there, so I am going to share the information here.

We are going to start by offering you refreshments from 1pm at the Oakley Hall. This sounds very grand but is in fact an unimposing building next to the church at 8 Castle Street, High Wycombe HP13 6RF. Unfortunately, the hall is upstairs and there is no lift (just in case anyone has mobility difficulties). There is a small NCP car park between the hall and the church, but it is expensive and might be full. However, the Eden Centre multi storey is only a short walk away. I have produced a google map which shows the layout and also the shortest walking route to the lifts in the Eden car park.

The church service itself begins at 3pm, and we ask that you take your seats in good time as family and close friends will follow when Wendy is brought in to the church.

The service will be followed by a Committal at the Chilterns Crematorium, Whielden Lane, Amersham, HP7 0ND. You are most welcome to come here too, and we will allow sufficient time for you to return to your car and make your way there.

It would be really helpful if you could let us know if you plan to come so that we can guage numbers.

In accordance with Wendy’s wishes, please do not buy flowers. Instead, we would ask that you donate the money to Wendy’s charities: Rennie Grove Hospice Care and Beating Bowel Cancer. You can do this via the links in the blog or hand your donations to the funeral director on the day.

    I would like to attend Church and if anyone needs a lift to and from central High Wycombe to the Crematorium I have 3 spaces in my car. Appreciate Crematorium has limited space so if no lifts required I am happy to forego in place of family, closer friends etc.
