“tell him that we love him, and we miss him”
It is with the deepest sorrow that we have to tell you that our dearly loved friend and colleague Graham Maule, artist and musician, founding member of the Wild Goose Resource Group and staff member of the Iona Community for many years, died peacefully on Sunday 29th December after a short illness. A full obituary will follow in due course.
Graham’s funeral service will take place on Friday 10th January at 11.00 in St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral, 300 Great Western Rd, Glasgow G4 9JB. For details of public transport, parking etc. please see this information sheet In addition to the information given on the sheet, another possibility is to use one of the subway Park and Ride carparks The nearest one is at Kelvinbridge but the Shields Road Park and Ride is very usefully placed for getting on to the M77 to get to Craufurdland. It is about 12 minutes on the subway from George Cross to Shields Road
The Burial will follow at Craufurdland Natural Woodland Burial Ground, near Fenwick in Ayrshire. Directions will be given at the funeral, (and also below) or see: https://craufurdland.co.uk/burial-ground/ Please note that whatever the prevailing weather conditions, access to the woodland burial site will be muddy so please bring appropriate footwear and warm outer clothing.
Thereafter there will be a time for meeting and light refreshments in the auditorium at Oran Mor, which is at the Botanic Gardens junction of Great Western Rd and Byres Rd, G12 8QX, from 14.30 to 18.30.
Go, silent friend, your life has found its ending:
to dust returns your weary, mortal frame.
God, who before birth called you into being,
now calls you hence, his accent still the same.
Go, silent friend, your life in Christ is buried;
for you He lived and died and rose again.
Close by His side your promised place is waiting
where, fully known, you shall with God remain.
Go, silent friend. Forgive us if we grieved you;
safe now in heaven, kindly say our name.
Your life has touched us, that is why we mourn you;
our lives without you cannot be the same.
Go, silent friend, we do not grudge you glory.
Sing, sing with joy deep praises to your Lord.
You, who believed that Christ would come back for you,
now celebrate that Jesus keeps his word.

CRAUFURDLAND WOODS BURIAL SITE
Leave the M77 at the Fenwick turn off. (Junction 7, B778 exit B751/Kilmaurs/Stewarton/Fenwick)
Drive through Fenwick.
About half a mile past the Kings Arms pub there is a sign on the left for the Woodlands Burial Site.
After about 500yds, turn left. (Again there is a sign)
The burial site is about 1 mile down that road.
Don’t use the postcode on the website in your SatNav as it wil take you to the estate rather than the Woodland Burial site.
However, “Craufurdland Woods Burial site” does appear in Google maps.
