Ben’s funeral

This is just a short post to let you know the details for Ben’s funeral, which are…

Friday 25th January


Woodland Burial Ground, Greenhill Road, Colehill, Wimborne, Dorset, BH21 2RG

There will be a ceremony, the burial and then some light refreshments. Anyone who would like to join us in our celebration of Ben’s life is very welcome – we would love to see you there.

We are going to have a picture gallery of Ben’s life –  if you have a picture of Ben that you’d like share, please bring it along (you can take it home with you afterwards).

To help us plan the refreshments if would be great if you could let us know if you’re intending to come.

Hope to see you there!

  6. Dear Sal, wish I could be there but will be overseas with work. However, I can hold the high watch from Europe since there is no time or space in God.:) I am sure it will be a beautiful ceremony and a fitting tribute to the unique and courageous soul that Ben was, is and ever shall be. Many blessings, Steph xxx

    Ben was my second cousin and although I haven’t seen him since we were children I have many memories of going on holiday together with my grandparents and visiting the nursery where they used to live. I am deeply saddened to hear about Ben and I wish you and your daughter my sincere condolences. I will be thinking of him and you and the rest of his family next Friday xxx

    This is Diane – David’s cousin. I was so shocked and saddened and really upset to hear about Ben but very moved and humbled to read Ben’s blog . You have both been so brave and strong throughout this ‘journey’. I shall be at the funeral together with my father Bryan Edge, and look forward to meeting you there.
