Jane Christine Snodgrass of Gratton sadly passed away on Sunday 18 August 2019.

Jane’s husband, Jonathan Snodgrass, would like to warmly invite anybody who knew his lovely wife Jane to attend the funeral service.

Jonathan has kindly provided details for the service below. Further to this are two photographs of Jane that he wishes to share, along with links to two documents.

The first document is a letter written by Jonathan following the passing of his wife in which he describes her final years, how she bravely battled her illness, shares fond memories and plans for her funeral service. The second item is a copy of an interview with Jane carried out by the Wirksworth Team Spirit Magazine.

Jonathan Snodgrass hopes that those of you who knew Jane will take a short time to read through the letters, reflect on your own memories of Jane and attend the service if you wish to do so.

All are invited after the service to come to afternoon tea at The Cheese Factory, Gratton.  

Dress Colourful Please

The Duke of York will be open from 1pm.
