Obituary and Memorial of the Late Valerie and Trevor Tew

The funeral took place on Friday November 27th of the late Valerie Mary Tew and her husband the late Trevor Martin Tew.  Valerie passed away peacefully on October 26th 2020 aged 78. Following a short illness Trevor passed away on November 8th 2020 aged 82. They were both dearly loved and devoted to each other. Loving parents of Stephen and Neil, father and mother-in law of Carol, treasured grandparents to Kayleigh and Oliver. Valerie was a loving sister of Michael and Richard. Trevor a loving brother of Gerald and Christine.  Both were much loved friends to many.

The funeral service was held at Birches Crematorium and conducted by The Reverend Ian Enticott.  As the funeral cortege travelled from Congleton to Northwich it paused outside Congleton Cricket Club to allow mourners to pay their respects.  On arrival at the crematorium both Valerie and Trevor were escorted into the service  to ‘Somewhere, Over the rainbow’ sung by Eva Cassidy. Eulogies were then read by Reverend Enticott and Miss Kayleigh Tew.  ‘Songbird’ by Eva Cassidy was played before Psalm 23 was read. Following a short reflection Prayers and The Lord’s Prayer were offered.  Cliff Richard’s ‘When the girl in your arms is the one you love’ was played as a reflection. This was also the song to which the couple held their first dance at their wedding on October 6th 1962.  A reading was then given by Andrew Weatherill, on behalf of his father Richard Weatherill.  ‘There you’ll be ’ by Jai McDowell was then played.  The commendation was read, followed by a Poem  ‘A life well lived ’ The committal followed and the service then concluded with ‘Wonderful life by Katie Melua.  Their lives were then celebrated with the ceremonial release of white doves.

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.
