Lionel Cockayne – Lymm RFC Former President – Funeral Arrangements

Author: John Cartwright

Further to our recent notification of the sad passing of Lionel Cockayne the arrangements for his funeral are provided below;

Date;               Friday 25th February 2022

Location;         Altrincham Crematorium, Whitehouse Lane, Dunham Massey, WA14 5RH

Time;               3:15pm

Following the funeral service everyone is invited back to Beechwood to celebrate the life of a very dear friend. A hot and cold buffet will be served.

The Crematorium has a limit of 100 seated attendees with no standing allowed. To comply with this limit, Lionel’s family have contacted relatives and friends with a personal invitation to attend.

Lionel had many friends, and we expect the number who will want to pay their last respects to him will exceed this limit. To this end we have arranged for the Funeral Cortege to drive through the Rugby Club Car Park prior to the service at the Crematorium, and for the service to be streamed and presented on the large screen in the Beechwood Club House.

Friends who would like to pay their last respects at Beechwood are very welcome and the details are provided below;

Cortege Drive Past;                 Approximately 2:35pm
