Information on Sarah White's funeral

February 14, 2022

We’ve had lots of enquiries about Sarah White’s funeral arrangements, as Sarah had so many friends and family in the UK and all over the world. But, at this time, when COVID is still raging and many people are vulnerable, Sarah’s family have restricted the funeral to a small number of close family and friends.

However, the funeral will be streamed live in real time and then stored for future viewing. We'll let you know details for accessing this when we have them.

Later in the year, Sarah’s family and the GPI will organise a large celebration for this remarkable woman. We’ll keep you posted.
