Melvyn Taylor - funeral service and refreshments
Melvyn's family have now arranged refreshments after the funeral at Wakefield Crematorium. They have provided the following directions:-
 
After the service, guests are invited to make their way to The Milnes Gaskell Function Room which is adjoining Howarth Funeral Services at 125 Denby Dale Road, Thornes, Wakefield WF2 8EB.  Howarth Funeral Services is shown as Thornes Parish Church of Saint James on online maps, but it is the adjacent building.
 
Parking is limited immediately outside the venue but there is parking available at the edge of the park opposite. A road off the roundabout leads up to the Premier Inn and there are a couple of small car parks on the left of the road. People will then have to cross the dual carriageway to get to the function room.
     Alex.
