Matt Rogers - Funeral Details

Matt's funeral will be on Monday 6 March 2017 at 12 Noon at Holy Trinity Church, Rainow and then afterwards at the Robin Hood in the village.

Matt’s wife Laura would like anyone from the Quiz League who wishes to attend to meet outside their house (see the News and Views for details) no later than 11:45am so that the funeral cortege can be walked to the church. Alternatively, people can go directly to the church if they wish.

Laura would like everyone to then attend at the Robin Hood for food and drink for a fitting send off for Matt.

Please be early and note that there will be a road block in the village from 11:30am. The Robin Hood has allowed the family to use their car park all day and there will be NO parking except for funeral vehicles on Church Lane itself.

The Robin Hood will be open early for tea, coffee etc on the morning of the funeral.

A group of Matt and Laura’s friends have taken the burden off the family and are arranging the catering and other things and would appreciate an idea of numbers.

If you do intend to attend the funeral and the Robin Hood afterwards, if you let me or Nick know, we will pass on the numbers etc to everyone organising the day.

I'm a former pupil of Matt Rogers and was (along with the rest of the Loreto community) greatly upset to hear about his recent passing. I thought I'd best make you aware of the fact that this post has been seen by a lot of the past and present pupils of Loreto who wish to attend and pay their respects, but, equally, do not want to intrude on the family's private matters. Can you (or perhaps one of the organisers of the event) confirm if the funeral is open to students?

Having been in touch with Matt's family and friends, I can confirm that anyone who knew Matt can attend and pay their respects on Monday, so all current and former students are very welcome. I'd suggest going directly to the church in time for the 12 Noon start of the service.
