Matthew Edwards Obit: Fred McCormick Nov 2015 (97* d) RE: Obit: Fred McCormick Nov 2015 25 Nov 15

Just to confirm details for the funeral; there will be a humanist celebration of Fred McCormick's life at Landican Cemetery and Crematorium, Wirral in the South Chapel at 2:30pm on Monday 7 December 2015. If you are coming the family have asked people to wear something red (a scarf, or tie for example) in tribute to Fred's political beliefs. The celebration will include some examples of the very different kinds of music which Fred loved so much.

The postcode for the crematorium is CH49 5LW. If you are coming by car follow directions to Heswall from M53 Exit 3 and there is a small map on the Wirral Council website,Landican Cemetery and Crematorium.

There is no nearby railway station, but if you are travelling by train to Lime Street or Birkenhead there is a direct bus service from Liverpool centre via Birkenhead to Landican every 10 minutes on routes 471 and 472 to Heswall.

There will be a gathering after the service at Misty Blues (formerly the Regency Suite) in Manor Road, Wallasey, CH44 1BY, on the corner with Grosvenor Road near Liscard shopping centre. There should be lifts available from the crematorium, but there is also a bus service from Arrowe Park Hotel, which is a short walk from the crematorium, on routes 413 and 414 to Seacombe and New Brighton respectively.

There will be a buffet meal, and a chance to share memories of Fred and to sing, say, or play something to give him the send-off he wanted.

Please send any condolences to Fred's niece Gill Barrie at 23 Frobisher Road, Leasowe, Wirral CH46 2RB.
