Details about the funeral of Fr John Lee
The funeral of our Archpriest John (Lee) is scheduled to take place at 11:00 am on Tuesday 1st July 2014 at St Andrew’s Church, Holborn. We expect the coffin to arrive at about 9:30am allowing, for those who wish, time to pray by its side. The funeral will start at 11:00am, followed by the burial at 2:30pm in Richmond cemetery. A coach with limited number of seats will be provided to take people from St Andrew’s Church to the burial at Richmond Cemetery. After the burial, the coach will make its way to the Wildwood Kitchen in Barnes where refreshments will be served, after which people will need to make their own way back home. From Barnes, there is good public transport available, with trains from Barnes railway station and several buses to Hammersmith underground station.
Please note that on a weekday, parking near St Andrew’s church is difficult and expensive, and it is within the congestion charge zone. The nearest tube stations are Farringdon and Chancery Lane.
If people wish to make a donation in lieu of flowers, the family have suggested a donation to Unicef, a charity close to Father John’s heart, which helps suffering children from around the world.
