The church is in the town centre and there are several pay-and-display car parks reasonably near, including the multi-storey next to The Wycombe Swan Theatre as well as some pay-and-display street spaces.


Kath is keen to have ‘lots of lovely Cornish voices’ when Trelawney is sung at the end of the service.


There will be refreshments in the hall downstairs from the church afterwards.


Kath will go with Francis to The Chilterns Crematorium, Whielden Lane, Amersham, HP7 0ND for a committal (not a service) at 2 o’clock and then return to the refreshments venue.  Anyone who would like to go to the committal would be welcome to attend.
