I very much regret to have to inform you that Jane Clifton-Bligh died on Wednesday 20th November 2014.

For info, Jane was diagnosed with cancer of the oesophagus six weeks ago and died peacefully surrounded by her children and grandchildren.

We've just received this from HHQ:
The funeral will be private. A Thanksgiving Service will take place at 11.00 am on Monday 1st
December at the Church of St Peter, Hinton St Mary, Sturminster Newton, Dorset DT10 1NA.

The family invite friends to join them for light refreshments after the service at the Tithe Barn which is adjacent to the church.

Family flowers only please. There will be a retiring collection at the service. Donations, if desired, may be sent to ‘The Contented Dementia Trust’ c/o:

Bracher Brothers, Funeral Directors, Newbury Street, Gillingham SP8 4QL Tel: 01747 822494.

Jane is survived by her daughter Olivia and son Gervais.

Can you please inform Home Headquarters (South) on 01962 828539 by midday Wednesday 26 November if you are going to attend so that names can be passed to the family and numbers to the caterers.

We offer our sincere condolences to the family.
