Funeral of Alex Macdonald – Monday 15 November

Dr Alex Macdonald – 1960-2021

The Macdonald family would like to thank everyone in the parish for the many gestures of kindness since Alex passed away.

The funeral will be held in Cropwell Bishop on Monday 15th November at 2pm.

Due to the size of the church and the need for Covid precautions, the church service and reception are by invitation only.

However, there are other ways that you can pay your respects. Your options are as follows:

  • There will be speakers broadcasting the funeral outside the church in Cropwell Bishop. The funeral cortege will make a circuit of Cotgrave and then arrive in Cropwell via Nottingham Road from about 1:30pm. You are welcome to stand in the churchyard or on the streets during the funeral. Please maintain social distancing. If you come anywhere near the church, please turn your mobile completely off (not just silent or aeroplane mode) to avoid disruption of the live-streaming. 
  • A donation page has been set up on for Alex’s chosen charities, but please don’t feel under any pressure to donate.
