Obituary and Memorial of the Late Patricia Ann Archer

The funeral service for Patricia Ann Archer took place at St Marys Church, Astbury on Friday 15th September 2023 and was conducted by The Reverend Angela Speedy.

Ann passed away peacefully on Wednesday 23rd August 2023 in the care of East Cheshire Hospice and surrounded by her loving family, aged 82 years.

The cherished wife of the late John, a loving mother to Andrew and Jane, a much-loved mother in law to Diane, the cherished grandma of Jessica, George and Rebecca, a respected sister to Lyn, sister in law and auntie.

Ann will be lovingly remembered for her warm personality, friendly smile, words of wisdom and unassuming nature and will be sadly missed by everyone who knew her.

Reverend Speedy welcomed everyone to the service and opened with prayers. The congregation stood to sing the hymn ‘The Lord’s My Shepherd’ after which Reverend Speedy told Ann’s Eulogy. The service continued with a reading from The Holy Gospel according to John, 14:1-6 & 27 followed by the Address and The Lord’s Prayer. The congregation stood to sing the hymn ‘The Old Rugged Cross’. Reverend Speedy gave prayers of commendation and farewell and closed with a blessing. Upon leaving the Church ‘Unchained Melody’ by Elvis Presley was played.

The funeral service continued with the interment at the graveside where Ann was laid to rest and reunited with her late husband John.

FAQs & Advice

We’re always happy to talk to you if you have any questions or queries regarding our services, but you may find the answers you need among our Frequently Asked Questions. If you still need help, please call our friendly team at any time.

We answer our phone 24 hours a day, no matter what we are doing. We would rather you call us at 3am and then get a good night’s sleep, rather than waiting until 10am and being up all night worrying about something. We’re here to support you, no matter what time it is.
No. You don’t need to wait for the doctor, death certificate, registrar or the coroner before making arrangements. We’re experienced and we’re professional in our approach to how we arrange funerals. We work to realistic timelines to ensure that a funeral can be completed in a timely manner. This is usually within two weeks of someone passing away. If we waited for death certificates before we began making the arrangements, this would probably extend to over three weeks.
We can offer a direct cremation service, like you may have seen on TV with the likes of Pure and Simplicita, for £1200 (inclusive of all fees). We can offer a simple attended funeral, again fully inclusive of all fees (doctors, cremation, celebrant fees), for £2600. For a traditional funeral service that may include things like flowers, an order of service, newspaper notices, a limousine etc, you should expect a total cost of approximately £3500 to £4000.
