For the many people who have been asking about this, here's a message we've received from Ian Murfitt:
Hi Dave. Maureen's funeral is at 11.00 next Friday (30th March) at St Michael's. I have just called Pete Forshaw. 11.00 is the start of the service and before that she will come down the canal on a boat from HER lock. You may wish to post this on the Middlewich Diary, as I have been asked by loads of people. I hope they will erect a plaque at the lock afterwards. Ian.
Many thanks to Ian for the information. We assume that the boat will leave Wardle Lock at around 10am (can anyone confirm this for us?) and the coffin will be taken to the church from the Town Wharf.
UPDATE (28th March):
Jenny Roscoe tells us:
I've been told today that Maureen will be taken from St Ann's Road Bridge onto the canal at 9.30am travelling on a BW working boat, arriving at Wardle Lock cottage at 9.45, and then due at Town Wharf at 10.40am
