The funeral of Buchi Emecheta (1944-2017)



Buchi Emecheta (21 July 1944 – 25 January 2017) will be buried on Wednesday, 15 February 2017,
at St Pancras Cemetery, 278 High Road, East Finchley, London N2 9AG.

The service will take place in the Islington Burial Chapel at 10.20am, followed by the interment at 11am.  The Chapel is next to the main office and is marked at the front gate.

A reception will be held from 1pm at The Old White Lion, 121 Great North Road, London N2 0NW.  The Old White Lion is across the road from East Finchley tube station.  Many of the well-wishers might wish to leave for the reception venue together.

How to get there:

The nearest tube station to St Pancras Cemetery is East Finchley on the Northern line. 

The cemetery main gate is a 25-minute walk (1 mile) or a 5-minute bus ride from the station. Take the 263 (runs along the High Road) heading towards Barnet - get off at St Mary's Church/Chandos Road.  There is also a minicab office next to the station.

Later on this year, a special memorial event will be held for Buchi in central London to properly celebrate her life and work.

Messages for the family can be sent to her son, Sylvester Onwordi
