Yesterday the 26th May, the Chapel was host for the Memorial Service for the late Frank Longcroft who had been closely connected with the local charity “Sue’s House”. Frank had been a Trustee and the Group Administrator. To read more about the important work Sues House undertakes click here.
To cater for the numbers extra chairs were brought in and a full Chapel celebrated the life of this local well liked and generous man.. Amongst the many tributes, there was moving one from his son Peter and the service included several poems. Afterwards everybody was invited to the Ilford Conservative Club which is virtually next door to the Chapel for an excellent buffet..It was a service of thanksgiving for a life well lived
It had been suggested that people might like to bring a rose each in memory of Frank. From the many roses collected a vase of flowers was then taken back to Sues House and the rest remained to beautify the Chapel.
