Below is from the notice many of you will have seen around Wapping.
John’s funeral will take place on Friday 24th October.
It will be leaving Shackleton House Prusom Street at 1pm going to the City of London cemetery for a cremation at 2pm.
As we all know John was not really a flower person and due to the immense interest from all over Tower Hamlets regarding John’s passing could we ask for family flowers only and for anyone else if you would like to make a donation either directly to Tadman’s Undertakers or on the day there will be a donation box in the crematorium.
John’s funeral cortege will stop by the bench and in the lane so anybody who is unable to come to the cemetery will have a chance to say their goodbyes to John as he leaves Wapping for the last time.
After the cemetery we will be going back to the Tenants Club in Raines Street where we will raise a glass in John’s memory.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the donations made so far.
