It is with deep regret that we have to report the passing of Driver Mick Sheridan.
Mick was a well respected Waterloo character who will be sorely missed.
Our thoughts are with his family, and all that knew him.

Mick's funeral service will be held on
Thursday the 5th of September at 12:00
St John's the Baptist (Anglican Church)*
Station Approach
Stoneleigh
KT19 0QZ

The committal will be held at 13:30#
North East Surrey Crematorium
Lower Morden Lane,
Morden,
Surrey SM4 4NU

For those wishing to go to the church first, we recommend taking the 10:54 that arrives at Stoneleigh at 11:21. (The church service commences at midday).

A coach (courtesy of SWT) will be provided between St John's and the crematorium. Following the committal, the coach will take us to a station.

For those who can only make the committal, bus number 163 leaves bus stop S from Raynes Park on the down side heading towards Morden. It is 9 stops to Hillcross Avenue which is close to the crematorium.


* Please note that the Church is also known as St John's. This is to avoid confusion between itself and the nearby Baptist church.

# Reverend Ruth Hellmuth, the vicar of St Johns has informed us that the committal has been put back 10 minutes to give a bit more time to get from the church to the crematorium. The committal is now 13:30 not 13:20.
