Ronald Taylor

Ronald Taylor passed away peacefully on 23rd May, aged 88. Ronald and his wife Rosemary who died in 2016, were long time residents of Godshill.

The funeral will be a short service at Bridge Court Cemetery on Friday 5th June at 1:00pm. Current restrictions dictate that only a minimum number of mourners can attend. The family would welcome others to participate remotely in prayer for both Ron and Rosemary at that time. June 5th would have been their 55th wedding anniversary.

At a future date there will be a memorial service at All Saints.
