Pooky has arranged for the verger to be there and to raise the turf.
She has also arranged for Margaret Jones to conduct a small service; Margaret is a vicar (I think) and is a very good friend of hers; she has met both Aunty Marta (Marta/Mamo/Babicka) and Tony.
Pooky has asked Ori to say the Kaddish, the Jewish prayer of mourning.
After the burial, those who wish to will go and visit Grandpa's (Max/Great-grandpa) grave north of Newcastle.
Those who wish are then scheduled to eat at 5pm. A carvery is organised (Ł15 per person) at the

It was better than it might have been, because Olly was looking particularly improved that morning.
Pooky produced an Order of Service.
Hana, Thom and Yaron sent a message from Australia, which was read at the service.
Blahoslav read his words.
Nikki sent a message which was read, but I don't (yet?) have.
The ceremonies were punctuated with pauses for photos, which are here.
I have assembled the photos into little movies: (1.6Meg) and (2.3Meg).
Any accounts or other words are welcome, and should be sent to me.
