Committing Kevin and Trevor’s ashes

Kevin and Trevor Dallimore-Wright were a couple who lived in Balham, London, who had been together for 45 years.  Over the past few years their health deteriorated and first Kevin died, followed by Trevor some months later.  On 9 September 2023 their friends and family gathered at Horselydown Old Steps, just downstream from Tower Bridge, London Borough of Southwark,  for the committal of ashes into the London Thames.  Two or three people shared their memories of the couple after which their ashes were scattered in the river.  People were offered red roses; some threw these into the river, while others removed the petals and scattered these.
