The funeral service that caters for everyone’s needs

Julia Ann Sedgwick-Smith

(4th May 1938 - 21st December 2023)

In loving memory of Julia Ann Sedgwick-Smith who passed away peacefully at Epsom Hospital on 21st December 2023, aged 85 years.

Julia (who preferred to be called ‘Julie’) was the amazing matriarch of the extended Wright, Palmer and Sedgwick-Smith families. She was the glue that kept the families bonded together with love. She was simply the best. ❤️

Julie was a wonderful daughter, sister, wife, mother, step mother, nan, aunt and great grand mother.

She was a ray of sunshine who lit up the room wherever she went. She was funny, kind, thoughtful, caring, down to earth and an inspiration to all. She loved family gatherings, parties, dancing and drinking the occasional glass of red wine!

Julie was loved and revered by a wide circle of life long friends and former work colleagues. She will be sadly missed.

Julie’s funeral Service will take place at the North East Surrey Crematorium, Lower Morden Lane, Morden. Surrey, SM4 4NU at 3.20pm on Wednesday 7th February 2024. Dress code – please supplement with something pink or cobalt blue.

By request, family flowers only please. Donations can be made on the Just Giving section on this page to ‘British Heart Foundation’ or sent to Alan Greenwood & Sons, 25, The Street, Ashtead, Surrey, KT21 1AA. A donation box will also be available in the Crematorium Chapel.

A Few Kind Words...

“We would like to thank you very much for looking after Mum and for all the arrangements you made for her funeral last Thursday. Your professionalism, help and ready advice together with your sensitivity at such a difficult time was much appreciated by us all. Our best regards.”

Nigel, Colin Ian & Coraine Ferguson

“Thank you so much for the care, support, compassion and understanding you showed with helping Chris and us to plan his funeral. You made a very difficult time for us more bearable for which we are very grateful. Thank you also for enabling all Chris’s plans to come to fruition. His ‘send-off’ was exactly what he wanted. Malcolm did a brilliant job too. Thank you, Jane, With love and sincere, thank you.”

Kathy, Samantha, Rosie and all the Sayer Family

“You make an extremely difficult time easier. Dad’s service was very fitting and I was so pleased to see him dressed in his uniform and hold his had one last time, Jess you did a lovely job. Thank you so so much.”

Clare

“Thank you for all your kind attention during the funeral of my husband John on the 24th May. The arrangements were so efficiently and sympathetically handled that it lifted a huge burden from my shoulders. I enclose a cheque in favour of the Alzheimer’s Society in memory of my beloved John.”

Catherine Waterman

“Dear Donna,

Just a little something to say thank you very much for all of your kind support during a very difficult time.

You really went above and beyond to help us and it was truly appreciated.

Thank you for helping us organise such a personal and fitting service for Margaret and everything else that you did for us.”

Bill, Sandra, Vicki and Family

“As a family we cannot thank you enough for all your care and support of us on the passing of our mum – Peggy Hart on October 19th and her funeral on October 31st. As we know from the past, you do a wonderful job and all the staff are so caring and compassionate. Carol you are a rock (dare I say Star!) as you guided us through so much and helped keep us on track.

The day went off so smoothly and well. Mum looked good and would have so enjoyed her last ride in the jag! Also she would have been pleased at Alan leading the way, as Dad – Bill thought so highly of him and always spoke of him in glowing terms when he was alive and said he was a great guy to work with.

Thank you, thank you, what more can I say. I just wish you had offices in Canada so when my time comes, I know I would be in such excellent caring hands.”

Maggie & Mike Raftery

“Dear Judy,

Thank you for all your hard work and great communication for the arrangement of mum’s funeral. Even though the restrictions limited certain things, everything ran so smoothly. We were able to celebrate mum’s life with a lovely service and great help from you and all at Alan Greenwood funeral services on the day.”

Yvonne and Peter Richardson

“Lynn, Bruce and I thank you so much for the wonderful understanding and help you have given us over the past days.It has been a difficult time but made so much easier by your guidance. With your kindness, we feel we managed to say our goodbyes to ‘Roger’, ‘Dad’ and ‘Grandy’ – showing our love and thanks to him for looking after us so perfectly over the years.”

Pat Clark
