Anyone who wishes to call and pay their respects will be welcome. It will be ‘open house’ but if you wish to ring before calling, round the number is 01200 443129.

    John’s Funeral cortege will leave his home at 1.00 PM on Wednesday for the church service at Pleasington Priory, near Blackburn, at 2.00 PM. This will be followed by a service at nearby Pleasington Crematorium at approximately 2.40 PM. Immediately following the cremation service, a wake will be held at a venue shortly to be announced.

    All are welcome to attend any part of the proceedings. Donations rather than floral tributes, can be made to Bipolar UK, Preston Branch, through Alty’s Funeral Service Blackburn, (01254 503240) from where further details may also be obtained
