From Hazel, Audrey Honey’s Daughter Thank you for your condolences and kind words about Mum, who really did enjoy her century of life. It would be lovely to see you and any others from St Bart’s at Mum’s funeral, as it was so much a part of her life for so long. We are really pleased that Ann Easter is able to lead the service because we wanted a link to East Ham to bring Mum’s life full circle.

Regarding flowers, we would like to keep it to immediate family only and ask that if friends would like to donate, our chosen charity is the Macular Society because Mum’s loss of sight was the thing which made life so difficult for her in latter years. A donation box and gift aid envelopes will be available on the day.

You are also warmly invited to join us for refreshments at the Hainault golf club after the service, should you wish to do so.

Audrey’s funeral will take place on 12 December 2018 at 12:45 at Forest Park Crematorium, Hainault. Andrew & Shirley would be happy to drop off any donations as they’re attending the funeral.
