As previously mentioned at the time of Joan Smith’s death, her ashes are to be scattered in the grounds of Southwark Cathedral.
A date has now been arranged for this to happen on Sunday April 26th after the Evensong Service that takes place at the Cathedral at 3pm.
Prior to her death Joan herself arranged that tea and cakes be provided for family and friends at Southwark Cathedral after this event.
All are welcome to attend, and for those of you who were unable to attend her funeral service at Beckenham, this is a further opportunity to share thoughts and memories of her.

Jo’s funeral service will be held at Beckenham Crematorium on Elmers End Road on Wednesday 11th February at 3.45pm.
At a date yet to be arranged there will be a further chance to remember Jo during an evensong service at Southwark Cathedral where her ashes are to be interred.

Individuals who want to make donations or send flowers can do so by sending them to the Funeral Directors who are The Co-op at 13 High Street West Wickham BR4 0LP. She wished monies to go to Southwark Cathedral Education Centre.

Jo will leave from her cottage that she loved so much: the hearse will leave Victor Road at about 3.15pm should you wish to pay your respects.


Jo Smith


We are very sorry that Jo Smith, a long-time resident of Victor Road, passed away yesterday.

She lived on the estate for many years and was very actively involved with the Residents’ Association: she led the organisation of the street party in 2005, started the Porcupine Post, wrote booklets on the history of the estate and would always organise parallel events for the children.

She will be greatly missed.
