It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Geoffrey (Geoff) Mather on the 7th January 2018 at a hospital in Norwich after a bout of illness. Geoff was a former pupil at Owens School in Islington whose school years were 1954-60 and he was also a Life member of the Old Owens Association.
The Association would like to send sincere condolences to wife Jane and the rest of the family. If anyone wishes to contact Jane or send their condolences, her address is 45 Christopher Close, Northrepps, near Cromer, Norfolk, NR27 0GA.
Details of Geoffs’ Funeral received from his wife Jane & family are as follows:
The Funeral will be held on Friday 26th January 2018 at 3pm
at Cromer Crematorium, Holt Road, Cromer, Norfolk, NR27 9JJ
(Tel: 01263 511106 , www.cromercrematorium.co.uk).
and afterwards at:
Sheringham Golf Club, Sweetbriar Lane, Sheringham, Norfolk, NR26 8HG
(Tel: 01263 823488, www.sheringhamgolfclub.co.uk).
We fully appreciate that some people live many miles away from Cromer and we do not want anyone to feel under obligation to attend. Those who do will be made most welcome and we ask that those who are unable to attend raise a glass at 3pm to celebrate Geoff’s life. We would like the occasion to be a celebration of the life of a lovely man who would not have wanted anyone to be sad. Geoff himself always enjoyed the company of his many friends and loved a party.
We ask that no one sends flowers and, that anyone who wishes to, makes a donation to:
(Tel: 0207 688 5555, blf.org.uk)
We would like to thank everyone who has telephoned, sent messages, emails, cards and flowers – please believe that all these things do help.
Jane, Richard, Jonna, Laine and Miles
