Funeral Arrangements – Former PC – Gary Matthews

Former Police Constable Gary Matthews Family have been in touch with an up dated plan for his funeral. Here is the information that they have supplied me with

“Just an update for Gary and his Funeral Arrangements,

Information for Family and Friends.

On 23rd June 2020, arrangements have been authorised for Gary to be police escorted from our home address. Leaving at 11.45am via the main A41 Holyhead, Wergs, Tettenhall Road to Chapel Ash Wolverhampton Ring Road around to Waterloo Road whereby we will stop on the concourse outside the Wolves Molineux football ground, ETA 12 noon.

This will be outside the main reception doors of the Billy Wright Stand, we have permission to stop there for a few moments so anyone wishing to pay respects can do at this point in or around the concourse area or along pavement.

Arrangements for parking have been granted free to use along the right of the BW stand along Molineux Alley up the hill only of which the WW club are allowing for anyone to use.

PLEASE REMEMBER Social distancing is paramount whilst at the Molineux

The funeral cortege will then continue along Stafford Road, Bushbury lane to Underhill Lane then the crematorium which is still as today not allowing anyone onto the grounds ( it may or may not change).

Due to time constraints we are unable to factor in G2 Wednesfield Police Station unfortunately.

Persons can also attend Underhill Lane outside the Crematorium, and are allowed to line the pavement so a few options for those wishing to pay respects to our beloved Gary.
Thank you

On and behalf of the Family of Gary Matthews.
