Ben’s funeral will be held on Thursday 23rd March
Please park and gather at Rattery Village Hall between 12 and 12.30. See map below and/or find directions here.
At approximately 12.30 we will process on foot to the Bidwell Woodland burial site (just under half a mile).
A short service will be held for Ben at the graveside.
Afterwards we will return to the Village Hall, to which everyone is invited, for tea and cakes and to share further memories of Ben.
Dress code and footwear
There is no dress code. However, please be aware that the burial site is a woodland with tracks and grass and we will be walking up a short hill, so wear sensible shoes. And if it is wet, make sure you have appropriate clothing.
Flowers and donations
Please feel free to bring a single stem or branch to place on the grave. Otherwise the family would prefer donations rather than flowers.
There will be a collection on the day for the Totnes Homeless drop in centre.
There is very limited parking at the burial site, so please park at the Village Hall
If you do need to drive to the burial site, please get in touch with Heart & Soul Funerals on 07715 206614 so that we can coordinate lift shares where possible.
Similarly, if you might need assistance up the hill at the burial site, please let us know in advance, as there is a small vehicle available.
