    I will be travelling by road to attend a funeral on Tuesday 14th January. Could you please let me know about parking in the vicinity of the Church. Is there on-street parking or is it necessary to use local authority/private facilities? If the latter, the address/post code of the car park and some indication of costs would be helpful.
    Many thanks.

      There is only paid parking in the area, via parking meters, The Vicarage has a car park which is about 10 minutes walk away, however parking on either side of the church is available via meters and around both school areas. We do have a parking area but most times it is gated off due to the school. Hope this helps

        Thank you for the information. I will use a meter. We country bumpkins do not understand the ways of the town which is why I asked.
        best regards,

    I worshipped at St Margarets when I was a young girl in the 1950′s am interested in establishing any contacts for people of that era. One chorister, Michael Riley whose Father was a Warden of the Church was a friend at that time and am interested to contact any former parishioners of that time. My name at that ime was Pauline Wyatt.

      Hi This is a very nice idea the best people to contact would be the church offices who would be best to help you with your request as they would undoubtedly have more information

    Dear Sir/Madam

    I am writing regarding the death of Edna Conibear (formerly Dodd) who was the wife of Rev Bill Dodd. Both were active church members when they lived in Barking

    She died peacefully following a short illness on 9th February 2014 at The Manor Care Home in Old Windsor.

    It would be much appreciated if you could pass on details of her passing to members of your congregation in Barking She spent many happy years there with my Father and really enjoyed her time living and working in the parish when they were Nurses at Goodmayes hospital.

    For your information I have pleasure confirming that I have now made arrangements for Edna’s funeral which will take place at

    11:00 am on Tuesday 4th March at:

    St Peters Church
    Furze Platt
    SL6 7QU

    This will be followed by a committal at 12:30 at Slough Crematorium.

    My Mum asked for no flowers but instead we have arranged donations to The Friends of St Georges Chapel and also Macmillan Nurses – without whom her last weeks would not have been so comfortable and pain free. (Donations can be sent care of funeral directors F G Pymm & Son. 65/67 Moorbridge Road Maidenhead Berkshire SL6 8LT. Telephone 01628 623822)

    I look forward to seeing any members of the congregation at the funeral if they are able to attend and would really appreciate it if you can pass this on to your congregation.

    Yours faithfully
    Steve (Edna’s Son)
