Funeral arrangements for John Seedhouse


John Seedhouse was a true stalwart of Walsall Wood. My condolences to his family and all who knew him.

Friend of the blog Mick Roseblade has kindly dropped me a line to ask if I’d publicise the funeral details for John Seedhouse, who passed away at his home recently – John was a well loved and greatly respected member of the community who will be remembered by many for his love of Walsall Wood FC, which he chaired for a while.

At the recent Boldmere St. Michael’s match, a minute silence was held in John’s memory, a true act of footballing solidarity and felicity.

John was father to Garth Perrins-Seedhouse who also fell to cancer. Such a cruel illness.

My condolences, sympathies and best wishes to all concerned, and especially John’s family. And thanks to Mick, it’s an honour to help.

Hi Bob,

Hope you’re keeping well?

Can I ask if you could publicise John Seedhouse’s funeral arrangements? John was father to the much loved Gareth Seedhouse who recently died tragically from cancer.

John had been suffering for several years with melanoma and finally died at home in Middleton Road, Saturday 29th August 2015.  John and wife Maureen are both well known at Walsall Wood FC where John chaired the club through some difficult periods in the 90s.

Funeral arrangements are as follows –

Tuesday Sept 22nd 2015
10.30am St Johns Church Walsall Wood
11.30am Streetly Crematorium

Refreshments to follow at King Street Club Walsall Wood.

One last request from John before he passed away – no dark suits or black ties to be worn at his funeral!

Please, no flowers – any donations will be given to St Giles Hospice Walsall.

Many thanks,
Mick Roseblade
