Alison's burial - arrangements for getting there: UPDATED

The Church at Milborne St Andrew
A number of people have indicated that they will be travelling to Dorchester by train for Alison's Requiem Mass, and they would therefore have difficulty attending the burial.

Those without transport who would like to attend the burial can travel there by a coach that has been organised.   It will be parked in front of the Church,  a little ahead of the hearse, and it will then follow the hearse after it has passed by. 

Milborne St Andrew cemetery in front of the Church
The burial should be completed by about 2.15pm.   The coach will then make two trips back to Dorchester, dropping off passengers at the railway station and the Church.  The first trip will be about 20-30 minutes after the burial and the second will be about an hour later.  The coach will depart from the Royal Oak pub in Milborne St Andrew, where there will be refreshments.

It would be helpful if those who would like a place on the coach could let me know so that they have a guaranteed place.  It would also be helpful to let me know as soon as possible in case there is need to provide a larger coach. Please email me on

The Royal Oak at Milborne St Andrew
There is no charge for travelling on the coach.

For those who are driving, it would be easiest to park at the Royal Oak (on the left as you enter the village on the A354), cross the road and walk up Chapel Street towards the Church and cemetery.  It isn't yet confirmed but it may be possible to park in the field next to the cemetery, which would be more helpful for those who are less mobile.   UPDATED:  It is confirmed that parking will be possible in the field next to the cemetery.
