Andrew Stubbs – funeral details

Andrew’s funeral will be at Birmingham Crematorium, Perry Barr, on Tuesday 5th May 2020 at 11.30. Due to restrictions, there will be only five immediate family members present at the service.

The family are hoping that the service can be live-streamed. If this is possible a link will be published as soon as it is available.

Andrew Stubbs

It is with deep regret that we announce that Andrew Stubbs has died after a short illness.

Andrew, Life Vice-President of the St Martin’s Guild, held the position of Master for 11 years. He was Master of the Ancient Society of College Youths (ASCY) in 1968 and held the office of ASCY Treasurer from 1981 to 2006.

Rest in peace, Andrew.

Chris Everett

Trish Everett’s husband, Chris, passed away following a short illness on 21 March 2020. Chris’ funeral took place on 1 April 2020 with just the immediate family in attendance.

Trish has given permission for this image of the order of service to be shared with the Guild and has asked that if any of you would like to light a candle and hold the family in your thoughts, they would very much appreciate it.

There will be a memorial service planned with thanksgiving, ringing and burial of ashes at a later date.
