There was a huge turnout at the funeral of George Cox, MBE at All Saints’ Church, Sedgley, on Friday 1st March.
Lining the path to the 3pm service in church was a guard of honour consisting of Sedgley Scouts and Sedgley Morris Men, who George knew and worked with over the years.
There was a Bible reading from John 14 by George’s brother-in-law Dave Towner and tributes by Andrew his son and granddaughter Elisabeth. Andrew spoke at length about George’s life, with special mention of his military service in World War II with the Royal Marines, his long career with Mander’s in Heath Town, Wolverhampton and the award of his MBE by Her Majesty the Queen at Buckingham Palace in 2009 for services to the Sedgley community.
