|Holy Trinity RC Church, Dorchester|
Her body will be received into the Church the previous evening, Thursday 12 December, at 4.30pm. There will be Holy Mass at 5.30pm. Before the Mass and for a period afterwards there will be an opportunity to pray and (for those who wish) to view the body.
After the Requiem Mass on the Friday, Alison will be buried in the cemetery at St Andrew's Church, in Milborne St Andrew, the village 8 miles from Dorchester where she lived since 1987.
There will be refreshments afterwards at the Royal Oak pub in Milborne St Andrew, just a few minutes' walk from the cemetery. All are welcome.
Several people have asked whether there are any special arrangements with regard to flowers or donations in memory of Alison.
There will be no organised collection of donations. Those who wish to make a donation in Alison's memory are asked to choose a suitable charity and to make their donation privately.
There is no expectation with regard to flowers. However, if anyone wishes to demonstrate their love and affection for Alison with flowers they are free to do so. It goes without saying that one's love and affection for Alison is not measured by the provision of flowers or by the scale of any flower offering that is given.
