The funeral service that caters for everyone’s needs

Ladan French

(10th June 1953 - 20th March 2023)

Ladan Roxanna French of Epsom, Surrey, passed away on 20th March 2023 from pneumonia, a complication of secondary breast cancer. 

Ladan was born on 10th June 1953 to Nasser and Monir Ghasripoor in Tehran, Persia (Iran). In 1979 she came to the UK where she became a nurse and met Stephen, a patient that would become her husband in 1985. They were married for 38 years before her death, and were blessed with two daughters.

Ladan was passionate about caring for people, becoming the Matron of two Bupa care homes and returning to the NHS until she retired in 2018. Her smile, personality, beauty and style lit up a room. She enjoyed hosting and cooking traditional Persian dishes for friends and family.

A funeral mass to remember Ladan will take place on Wednesday 3rd May at 10:30am, St Joseph’s Church, Epsom, KT18 7QJ.

A Few Kind Words...

“I would like to say a huge thank you to both Carina at Alan Greenwood and Sons in Frimley and the Celebrant. When my mother-in-law passed, we had absolutely no idea what we were doing other than needing to contact a funeral directors. After calling, Carina invited us into the Frimley branch for an informal chat and made us feel at ease straight away. She talked us through every step whilst being compassionate, caring and professional during the whole process. It was a difficult time that was made so much easier by the way Carina and Maria handled everything. When the Celebrant contacted us we were unsure of what we wanted for the service, with his knowledge and understanding he helped us to put together a service that was both relaxed, professional and perfectly suited to us. Thank you to the whole team!”

“Dear Jo,

Thanks so much for all you did leading up to the funeral. None of us could have got through it without your support.

Many thanks for everything you did for us, for all your help and for making a very sad day so easy. Your support has been amazing.

A huge thank you. Your dedication made saying farewell to Mum all the more bearable.”

“How can we say thank you for all you did to make Robert (Bob’s) funeral so lovely? We felt you worked so hard ,with your company and the Church to make everything so nice. So once again thank you.”

“Dear Fran

I just wanted to drop you an email to thank you for all your care and support in the arrangements for my dad, John.

I know that my Mum, Valerie, was most grateful for your support and care, particularly last Friday which was a difficult day for her. Mum said to me that you went over and above in her eyes, making sure she was ok before you would let her leave.

Dad would have highly approved of the day yesterday, and that’s all we could have asked for. It really was the celebration of his life that he would have wanted.

Again, my sincerest thanks and gratitude to you all.”

Helena

“Just a note to say a huge thank you to yourself and the wonderful team at Send Greenwoods, they took care of us all yesterday at Les Ingram’s funeral. I’ve really valued your help and support over the last few weeks and the wonderful men yesterday went beyond their ‘call of duty’. They were certainly there at our great time of need. Please pass on my thanks to everyone. I also enclose four more donations. Many thanks again.”
