Grandmother of Cometan

(née Cottam)

29th August 1937 – 23rd June 2023

A personal message from Cometan


I am heartbroken to have to announce the passing of my grandma Hilda who died at home this morning at 11:32 with her devoted husband, my grandad Bill, and I right by her side. My grandad cared for my grandma during her final years even while unwell himself.


You taught me so many lessons Grandma and I will forever miss your loving guidance. I am lost now that you are no longer in this world with me but I have so many memories to cherish of our time together which will help me to see the light in the dark days ahead as I say my final goodbye.


You have been reunited with your beloved daughter Karen who was taken from you as a child far too soon and also your mother Jane who you never got to know. Please watch over me Grandma and continue to guide me in this life. May you now rest in perpetual bliss. I know that one day we will meet again.


Love always, your grandson, Brandon.

Hilda Warbrick, Grandmother of Cometan,
