Funeral arrangements for Gareth Perrins-Seedhouse

Gareth Perrins-Seedhouse: a remarkable chap.

Following my post a few days ago where I shared the awful news that Gareth Perrins-Seedhouse had passed away, I received a lovely and very kind email from Mick Roseblade, a close friend of the family, who’s also asked me to publicise the arrangements for Gareth’s funeral.

Mick wrote:

Hi Bob,

Hope you can help by publicizing details of Gareth Seedhouse’s funeral:

Have been informed that the funeral will be on next Thursday – 31st July 2014.

The programme of events is as follows:

2pm Service held at St Johns Church, High Street, Walsall Wood
3pm Service at Streetly Crematorium

This will be followed by a gathering at Pelsall Labour Club, Church Lane, Pelsall. (This is on the green alongside St Michael’s Church.)

Hopefully we can give him a good send off.

Kindest regards
Mick Roseblade

I have been awestruck by the genuine love and affection shown throughout the local community for Gareth, and at the sheer volume and sincerity of condolences and care for his family. I know his loss was particularly keenly felt at Walsall Wood Football Club, where Gareth was remembered publicly before their last match.

Gareth was a great man and will be sadly missed.

I appealed for donations on behalf of Gareth Perrins-Seedhouse back in 2012, when, despite his ongoing and grave illness, he ran Shenstone Fun Run, raising a huge total of £7,355.40 for the Teenage Cancer Trust. That appeal has now expired, but you can donate to the Teenage Cancer Trust directly here.

    Thank you for this update and information Bob. Been thinking about Gareth and his family a lot today.

    I was wondering if a lasting memorial to Gareth could be considered in one of his and our beloved parks in Walsall?
