Deputy Second Coxswain Trevor Brookers funeral arrangements


As some of you may already know dad’s funeral will be held this Thursday 1st October, 3pm at Weymouth Crematorium. Due to Covid restrictions, we’ve had the extremely difficult task of choosing a very limited number of attendees. We’ve tried to do the best by dad without causing any offence or upset – it saddens us deeply that so many of you will not be able to attend. For those who we have reached out to with an invitation to the service, please do ensure that you wear masks and abide by social distancing measures.

We have organised for dad’s hearse to depart Weymouth RNLI’s life boat house, Nothe Parade at 2.15pm.
For anyone who would like to pay their respects, we ask that you line the RNLI side of Weymouth harbour (in a socially distanced manner, in groups of no more than 6) to watch dad make his final journey.
Given dad’s connection to the RNLI & Weymouth harbour this feels like the most apt tribute we can make to him. After all, Weymouth harbourside was dad’s forever place & his home from home.

At this current time, we are unable to organise a wake, but as soon as things resume to a certain level of normality we will organise a celebration of dad’s life for EVERYONE to attend. We are not sure when this will be but we will announce this when the time comes.

A live stream of dad’s funeral will be available during and for 7 days after the service. The link will go live a few minutes before the service commences at 3pm on Thursday 1st October.

For anyone who would like to make a donation in honour of dad, we ask that you donate to the RNLI or Fisherman’s Mission – two causes close to dad’s heart. Donations can be made by cheque to the respective charity and handled by Co-Op Funeralcare Weymouth. Cash donations are not accepted by Co-Op at this time owing to Covid restrictions but myself and Lorna are happy to collect/organise cash donation if this is your preferred method of payment.

With Love from Becky & Lorna ❤️
