Mathew's Funeral

Mathew 'Shilly' Shillito served us all not only during his service in the 9th/12th Royal Lancers in the Army, but also in everyday life.

Sadly, Mathew lost his battle with PTSD on Monday 1 October 2018, leaving behind his Beautiful Daughter, Gracie-Alice.

Mathew loved spending time with his daughter, drinking coffee, cracking jokes, darts, bowling and helping other people.

Despite fighting his own battle with his mental health, he helped others right to the end.

It is with great sadness that Mathew's family are preparing to give Mathew a relaxed 'Mathew-Style' send-off  which reflects his spirit and much-loved personality.

This fund is to assist with the burden of those heartbreaking plans and will help Mathew's family.

Any funds not used for the funeral will be donated by Mathew's family to the 'Once, we were soldiers' Charity who have supported Mathew and his family.

Thank you and stay safe.
