The funeral of long term Polstead resident, Marjorie Pratt, took place on Wednesday 23rd November in St Mary’s Church Polstead.
Alongside her family and friends who had come to say their final farewells and to commend her into God’s safe keeping, we were joined by an unusual visitor – a wonderfully turned out Suffolk Punch who had also lead the funeral cortege up to the church.
It was then agreed that the horse would join us inside the church, where it must be said it behaved impeccably:
Before leading the coffin out of the church, where Marjorie was laid to rest in the churchyard.
We continue to pray for Marjorie, and for her family whom we thank for allowing us to share these photographs.
In loving memory of
Marjorie Constance Pratt
