A Requiem Mass for Richard Collins will be held on Tuesday 21st October at 12 noon at St David's and St Patrick's Roman Catholic Church, Dew Street, 9 Fountain Row, Haverfordwest, SA61 1SX.  This will be followed by a funeral breakfast - details will be provided on the day.

Please could you let us know in the comments box below if you will be attending.  

We are also appealing for additional singers for the Requiem Mass, please let us know if you are able to help.

We were greatly supported by The Paul Sartori Foundation whilst Richard was ill.  We received extraordinary compassionate care from wonderful hospice nurses in the nights leading up to Richard's death.  As such, in lieu of flowers, we would request any donations to be made to The Paul Sartori Foundation.  Donations may be sent c/o The Treasurer, The Paul Sartori Foundation, 31 Haven Road, Haverfordwest, SA61 1DU.

Enquiries can be made to Roy Folland & Son Funeral Directors, 01437 763821.


  1. I cannot attend, but I am with you in my prayer-filled heart. And I am more than glad to assist with my few farthing those who, in turn, assisted in caring for a wonderful witness to the Faith.

    Noel, nat-ons,

  6. Sadly, I will not be able to attend Richard's funeral. I have looked at every which way of travelling from London and there seem to be no trains running to Haverfordwest on that day. My prayers for you all and for the repose of Richard's soul will be made at Mass on Tuesday and I will have a Mass said for him.
    God Bless.

  7. I so wish I were able to be there. I will have a Mass said. Ar dheis De go raibh a anam dhilis.

  8. We will join with our prayers at that hour.

    May he rest in the peace of Christ and may you all be comforted.

    God bless
    Alan and Angeline Hougton
