Michael Barlow's funeral will take place on Thursday 1 October at 10.30am. We have received numerous messages from those who knew and performed alongside Michael over many years, which speak highly of his musical talents and his personal kindness. Due to the current COVID-19 guidance, attendance at his funeral is limited by law to 30 people. Whilst many would like to attend this will sadly not be possible, and so we need to make attendance 'by ticket' only.
We are planning to livestream the service on Facebook, and upload it to YouTube afterwards. We also intend to have a memorial service when current restrictions are lifted and we can all gather and include many of the musical items that we cannot include at the funeral.
Having said this it is right that some from St Mary's do attend and, having allowed for family, we can offer a few places to those from St Mary’s and the many other choirs and trusts Michael supported. So if you wish to attend, please pass your details to the Parish Office: [email protected] or 01959 561 330 and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
Thank you for your understanding
