Mother’s Day tribute to those past and present


An unusual tribute marked Mother’s Day in New Addington, on Sunday. Angelia Jordan, a funeral arranger, gave over the window of her shop to photographs of mothers past and present

Angelia Jordan, who works at Rowland Brothers in Central Parade, New Addington, asked people to lend her pictures of their mums so she could display them in the shop window.

Jordan, who lost her mother, June Tarry, two and half years ago, said: “I want as many people as possible to have their mums’ faces up in the display because they are very important people.

“It’s really hard to get people involved with things like this because of the stigma attached to funeral homes – people think of death and they run away.

“But we really want to do something positive and heart-warming to encourage more people to come in – even if it’s just for a cup of tea and a chat.
