From his wife Michelle

Dear All,

The funeral and wake have now been arranged for this Friday at 3:15pm. Please see details, and forward to any who need it.

Please note there will not be enough seats for everyone at the Lodge for the service, but the staff will be opening the bi-fold doors at the back, so if you’re up for standing – please do.

Love to all,


Kevan Heydon 1967 – 2017 Funeral: Friday 30th June 2017

Service: 3:15 pm at The Lodge , Arbory Trust’s Barton Glebe Woodland Burial Ground, Barton, Cambridge Family flowers only, donations to be made in Kevan’s memory to Friends of Jesus Green Pool (see below, or send to me).

Attire: Wear whatever you feel most comfortable in. Kevan’s preference was casual, and he’d hate to think he was making his family & friends wear a suit and black!

Burial: 3:45 pm at the Graveside (family only) The Arbory Trust’s Barton Glebe Woodland Burial Ground, Barton, Cambridge

Travelling details: The Burial Ground is located on Comberton Road, Barton (the B1046) between the villages of Barton and Comberton. For those of you with GPS systems, Barton Glebe does not have postal facilities, and therefore no official post code, but the closest one in operation is CB23 7BN. The co-ordinates are N52.18649 o , E0.04616 o . Otherwise, the map should guide you successfully to Barton Glebe. The M11 Junction 12 is the closest Motorway junction.

Wake: 5:00 pm til late, at our home, 5 Bandon Rd, Girton Cambridge CB3 0LU We will be providing a BBQ to send Kevan off in style, with 3 firkins of ale from Milton Brewery. So many friends have asked how they can help, and so here is the way! We would love to receive either a cake for the dessert table (that doesn’t need a fridge), a salad or wine/lager if ale doesn’t appeal 🙂 Parking @ Bandon Rd Our neighbours further down the street, at 17 Bandon Road have a construction site next door, and they have offered the site from 5pm for parking, which should take 20-30 cars. Do try and car share if possible, otherwise – it will be pot luck on the street.

Memories of Kevan

Please use these links above to upload photo’s and anecdotes of happy/funny memories you have of Kevan, and this will be curated and made into a book for the family to enjoy and reminisce later on. There will also be an opportunity to add new anecdotes at the wake, as the stories get longer!

Memorial Swim, There will also be a memorial swim for Kevan at Jesus Green pool on Sunday 2nd July, – gates opening early for us at 10:30 am. Do come along and enjoy the solitude of a swim before the public start arriving!

Donations in memory of Kevan

Donations to be made in Kevan’s memory to the pool he loved. We are hoping to raise enough to provide a quick access card swipe system for Members with season tickets, enabling them to get in quickly for lunchtime swims when the queues are long.
