Lode Brothers Family you can Turn to in Time of Grief

During times of shock and grief at the loss of a loved one who has passed away, generally the last thing that family members and friends need to worry or think about is physically sorting out the affairs of their beloved. It is always at times like these when emotions are high, that “life administration” is the hardest thing to deal with. Leaving your affairs in order is one final gifts that you can give to your family, making a difficult time a little easier for them.

 

If this is your intention for when you pass away, you will need the services of a reputable legal firm to place your belonging s in probate.  If you have a Will, your executor applies for a grant of probate which then ensures that they are responsible for the administration of your estate and affairs, as well as ensuring that you estate is being administered according to your wishes and that the right people are dealing with your affairs.

A grant of Probate will need to be applied for by an Executor or administrator and it is a legal document. The document confirms who the executor of your estate is and that they have the authority to deal with your assets, on your passing. This includes your money, any property that you may have and your general belongings. The Executor uses the grant as proof that they have the right to access your funds, assist with any and all finances that need to be dealt with and then subsequently distribute the finances and assets as you have set out in your Will, to those who are meant to receive them.

At the offices of Lodge Brothers Legal Services, we offer theses probate services to all of our clients.

LODGE BROTHERS CHRISTMAS REMEMBRANCE TREES AT ENGLEFIELD GREEN & WINDSOR

Screen Shot 2017-01-03 at 12.03.12

Each year, all the branches of Lodge Brothers Funeral Directors place a tree in their windows and invite those families who have lost a loved one in that year to attach a ‘remembrance card’ and give thanks for the life of the one they have lost.

In the end, across the branches, the memorial trees hold hundreds of cards. The branch at Windsor went one stage further and invited people to a small service of blessing on the last Sunday before Christmas, led by local vicar, Rev Margaret Bird.

The dozen or so who attended found the whole occasion very meaningful, some simply to remember and others to continue to try to come to terms with the loss of their loved one.

District Manager, Richard Leachman, commented that “Each person who came had their own individual reason for being there, and everyone could not thank us enough for putting on this simple event. It was very moving”.

Afterwards, Jill Palmer (arranger at Windsor) and Tom Hoyles (arranger at Englefield Green) who set up the event, travelled the few miles to ‘the Green’ and repeated the event there, led by Rev Mark Ewbank, vicar of St Jude’s.

Not one to shy away from a challenge, Paul Bye at Lodge Brothers could not turn down the opportunity to save Christmas for Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice when he was approached by the Hospice for help.

The Hospice had been gifted a 20ft Christmas tree from a local garden centre but they had no way of delivering the tree to the Hospice. The gauntlet was thrown down and within hours a large lorry was hired, and Chris Oliver and Paul were on their way to deliver the tree.

The Dutch tree took centre stage at the Hospice’s ‘Light up a Life’ event on 28th November.

Funds Raised for Home Start by Lodge Brothers Walton

The staff at Lodge Brothers Walton were delighted to welcome Carol Hodges (Manager) and Gill Robinson (Family Support Coordinator) from the charity ‘Home Start’ to the branch, to present them with a cheque for £150 for monies raised with donations from the local community.

Both Ann McMurray (Branch Arranger) and Sharon Brunn (Relief Branch Arranger), made holly wreaths at Christmas time, which were available from the Walton branch for anybody who wanted to remember their loved one. Whilst it was not a requirement, people still generously made donations in return for taking a wreath home with them.

Ann said “It is a difficult time of year for many families who have lost a loved one, and therefore we wanted to help them by providing something special which could either be taken home as a table decoration, or even placed in memory of someone in a special place.”

Sharon chose the charity Home Start as the worthy cause to receive the monies raised.

Lodge Brothers commemorated remembrance day

A Woking man has devoted the last few months to putting together a display to commemorate not only all those who lost their lives in the two World Wars and later conflicts, but also in memory of his Father and Son.

Neville Lazenby wanted to create the display to thank Lodge Brothers Funeral Directors of Goldsworth Road, for the way they looked after his son Steven after he died of a brain tumour in January 2012.  Neville and his wife Janette have remained in contact with Paul Thurtle (Branch Manager) since Paul arranged their son’s funeral.

In this very special year marking the 100th anniversary of Britain entering the First World War, Neville decided to design and build a window display for the Woking Branch of Lodge Brothers.

The picture shows Neville and Paul with the display.

Neville has included a picture of his father, Sergeant Ralph Lazenby who died in 2003.  He was an original member of the SAS in 1941.  He was sent out to the Middle East, was captured and then imprisoned in Stalag 357.

Also remembered in the display is Woking resident Walter ‘Charlie’ Brown OBE who died in 2010.

Neville also included in the display four detailed replica figures of soldiers from his collection.  The soldiers and the display have been causing a lot of interest from local people passing by the window.

Paul and all the Lodge Brothers branches such as Funeral Directors AshfordFuneral Directors FelthamFuneral Directors WokingFuneral Directors Chertsey and Funeral Directors Englefield Green are extremely grateful to Neville and Janette for their generosity in using their time and talents to create a fantastic window display.

AV Smith & Sons Say Farewell to Branch Arranger Sheila Sherwood

sheila1

After just two and a half years with the company, Sheila Sherwood, Funeral Arranger at AV Smith & Sons, Hillingdon, is leaving to start a new career with British Airways at nearby Heathrow Airport. In her time with Lodge Brothers, Sheila has arranged just over 250 funerals. She has endeared herself to clients with her calm and empathetic manner, and her colleagues admire lively sense of humour and teamwork.

Her office is festooned with ‘thank-you’ cards from grateful clients and, as this web-site will testify, a whole raft of testimonials.

Our local vicar at St John’s Church, Hillingdon, Reverend Robert Harrison commented, “It has been an absolute pleasure working with Sheila; she has such a kind and caring nature that is so reassuring for bereaved families. She has been an integral part of the very fabric of Hillingdon village life and she will be sorely missed”.

Sheila said, “I have really enjoyed working for Lodge Brothers; the people are fantastic and the job is extremely satisfying, however, I just feel ready for a career move.”
