Funeral details for Vanessa Clarke

The funeral for Vanessa Clarke will take place at St Peter's Church, Coverack, Cornwall, TR12 6TB on Friday 18 May at 3pm.

This will be followed by tea at The Paris Hotel, Coverack, Cornwall TR12 6SX, and will continue into the evening with food.

Vanessa's family has said that all students, staff, and colleagues at the University and her placement at Accenture are very welcome to attend.

They have made two requests:

  • The first is that you should not wear black, but dress colourfully and wear pink, if possible, as this was a colour Vanessa often wore.
  • Secondly, Vanessa's family is compiling a book of memories and would appreciate any photographs and other momentos of her.

Vanessa's family can arrange lifts from the station for anyone planning to travel by train to Redruth, which is the closest station to Coverack. However, you will need to arrive there by 2pm in order to reach Coverack in time for the funeral. They can also arrange accommodation with friends in Coverack for anyone wishing to stay overnight. Please contact the Students' Union Advice & Representation Centre for further details

The University will also be arranging a coach for staff and students wanting to attend Vanessa's funeral which will depart the University campus on Friday 18 May at 9am and leave Coverack at 10pm. Staff or students wanting to book a place on this coach should do so through the Students' Union Advice & Representation Centre by the end of Wednesday 16 May.

Staff and students wanting to share and celebrate with others their memories of Vanessa, but unable to travel to Cornwall, will be able to do so in the Chaplaincy at a memorial event being organised by Vanessa's friends on Friday 18 May at 7:30pm. More details to follow.
