Dear All those who knew Brian Kirkman (from his daughters Helen and Lucy)
It’s with great sadness that we are writing to let you know that our Dad, Brian passed away on Wednesday, 18th March.
We are planning to have a very simple and short graveside service on Thursday 9th April at Painswick cemetery, where Dad will be buried alongside our Mum. Unfortunately, given the current restrictions that are in place additional people won’t be able to attend, so we are planning to have a memorial service for him later in the year in the area local to Painswick.
Clearly, we’re not in the position to make any firm plans at the moment, however our current thinking is that we will hold this on 19th September and we will do a walk up the Painswick Beacon (for those who would like to join us), followed by refreshments and a celebrant service in a local pub/hotel. As soon as we’re able to, we will confirm the details, but for the time being please hold this date.
We will be setting up a donation page in Dad’s name for a dementia charity, so we would prefer you not to send flowers. We will let you know the details, if you would like to donate, in due course.
Please feel free to forward on to anyone else who you think would like to attend the memorial service later in the year.
