Celebrating Daphne Edwards
Tuesday September 8th 2020
Arrival at Queensridge Court 1:00pm,
Service at Crematorium 1:45pm,
Refreshments at Caribbean Resource Centre 2:45pm
We are strictly limited to 30 people for the funeral and so the crematorium and
refreshments are sadly by INVITATION ONLY. Unfortunately, many of Daphne’s family
and friends will not be able to join us.

The family will be outside at Queensridge Court from 12.30 pm, so please do feel free to attend to see Daphne off. Those unable to attend can follow the service via a weblink and the details for this are below.

Daphne requested that you wear whatever you feel comfortable in, and some of us
will be wearing her favourite colours. Also, as much as we would all like to hug
each other at this time, we have to observe social distancing to keep everyone safe.
Please don’t be offended if we don’t greet you in the usual way. We will save all the
love for safer times. We will also need to wear masks during the service, songs will
be recorded as there is no singing and we will be using sanitiser regularly. We’ve
been so touched by the number of cards and messages; if you would like to send a
message of condolence or share memories of Daphne, we’ll be pleased to read it at
the reception after the service. Please send to Flat 71, Queensridge Court or email
amanda@thewlbc.com or WhatsApp Melrose or Amanda using contact numbers
