Canon Reverend Ronald Greenall 1941-2021
Canon Ron sadly passed away on Thursday 2nd September in
Royal Preston Hospital following a short illness.
He was 80 years old.
Canon Ron was a very well known, much loved and respected
member of the clergy, Garstang and wider community. He was
proud to serve other parishes as well as Garstang where he was
also Rural Area Dean.
His funeral service will be held at the Parish Church of St. Helen’s
Churchtown on Tuesday 21st September at 11.00am, followed
with interment in the churchyard.
As a mark of respect for Canon Ron and his service to Garstang
and the surrounding community, his official cortege will travel
through Garstang and pause at St. Thomas’ Church before arriving
at his final resting place, St. Helen’s Church. This will allow all his
friends and people who knew him to pay their respects.
We will leave the Garstang Funeral Home at 10.00am and travel
to the family home. Once we have had some time there, leave
around 10.20am. We expect to pass the Cornmill Nursing Home
around 10.25am, arriving at the top of the High Street at 10.30am.
Funeral director Greg Hodgkinson will lead the cortege and walk
down the High Street, going right at The Royal Oak and down onto
Church Street, pausing for a few moments at St. Thomas’ Church at
about 10.40am. Before we finally arrive at St. Helen’s Church at 10.50am.
For those unable to attend the service in church, the funeral will be
