    Dad you will always be my hero and inspiration, you lived your life through us and I lived for you.

    To be able to look after you in your final year made an already strong bond even stronger but the pain I now have in my heart is at times unbearable.

    I love you dad, say hi to granny for me xx

    Kenn, no words can alleviate the saddness that you feel at this time, but just know that we’re all thinking of you and your family. I never had the pleasure of meeting your Dad, but from listening to you & Helen speaking about him, it’s obvious he was a wonderful man. Take care of yourself and give my love and sympathy to the rest of your family.

    My Mother’s brother was always a wonderful, kind and gentle man. Like his Mother, his laugh was infectious!

    As a baby, he took many pictures of me and later shared those memories with me when I visited England. He loved taking pictures and was emotional when reminiscing about past events.

    As a little girl, he sent designer dresses for me and clothes for my family when we lived in the Bahamas. My brother and I were always excited to receive those packages from England. It was a big deal for us. As an adult, he travelled to Atlanta to spend time with my family.

    I love my uncle and will miss him dearly.

    To my family, Aunt Aggie, Ken, Glen, Don, Malcom …know that Uncle is at peace and in a better place. I know that Mom and Uncle Hemsley has received and welcomed him with open arms.

    My love and deepest condolences to you all.

    I think my sister Lelia said it all but to put my 2 cents in – my Uncle Neville was soooo loving and kind to me – I truly felt the love he had for his younger sister, my mother. He and my mother had a special bond which she made me aware of and he confirmed.

    He looked out for her kids before they met their father at the ages of 8 and 9. Not only was he a good older brother but he was also a great Uncle. From the clothes that he sent me over the years, I credit him for my love of fine clothing – Thank you Uncle Neville.

    I will never forget his kind words and gentle manner – I’m still working on being a gentleman – Thank you Uncle Neville.

    I have been blessed to have such a great Uncle and will cherish his memory forever.

    May God Rest His Soul and and Keep Him in Peace!

    You and your family have been part of our family as our children were growing up. We celebrated many birthdays, Christmas, New Year and anniversaries together. You were a great photographer and took many photos of these celebrations. I remember you spent a great deal of time taking out some proper wedding photos of Andrew and I on our return from our wedding in Trinidad as the camera you loaned us needed a professional like you to use it on the day. We share so many memories of fun and laughter together and we will cherish them.

    I hope you will enjoy the beauty of the garden where you do not have to pull out any weeds or top up the soil and have endless conversations with your friends and family there.

    God Bless and rest in peace.

      Roland, thank you for the many visits you made to see Dad, we all really appreciate the time you spent with him and so did he.

      It always brings a smile to my face remembering the search we had when Dad mislaid his account book…

      Thanks again Roland for your kind words and your support.

    The first time I met Neville the first thing he said to me was ‘I hear some Trini slang words, where you from’ it was from that point I had to explain my family history (parents Grenadian but reside in Trinidad). Neville was very interested and often talked about Trinidad and the first mas band that he formed in Trinidad, I often spoke to him about steel pan which which I use to play and in turn he expressed his love for this. At times I would have to get roti for him and prepare other dishes such as stew chicken, cuckoo and many other favourites. Neville’s spirit took to me due to his genuine nature and kind heart, but make no mistake he also spoke his mind. As we all know , one day it will be our time to depart but where we end up on the other side determines how we live, I can truly say that right now Neville is in a gracious place at rest, this I am sure with a beautiful garden blossoming with great smells and character just the way he likes.

    Dear Neville for she short time I shared with you I would like to say ‘Thank you’ as your spirit and kind ways has touched my heart. Will truly miss you but will never forget you.

    Rest in peace.

    To Don, Glen, Ken and Agatha stay strong and united, keep the good memories close as this will guide you all through this time.

    Neville, you were a great friend and teacher to me,
    When we moved here 34 years ago I knew nothing about gardening, you were always there to give help and advice, your knowledge of the garden was never ending and I learnt nearly all I know about gardening from you.

    We used to spend hours working our gardens side by side while we chatted about anything and everything for hours on end and chatted to the people who admired our gardens as they walked by.

    We had long chats and discussions about so many different things while sipping a small beer sitting in the back garden, I will miss that too.

    I will miss you my dear friend,working in the garden won’t be the same without you.

    Rest in peace in the garden of heaven my dearest friend.

    Kenn,Glenn and Don I am so sorry for your loss, always remember you were very lucky to have such a great, gentle and kind man as your father.


    • Kenn Jordan
      on February 23, 2012 #

      Franco, you and my Dad had a very close bond, he often relayed stories of the times you and he spent together working in the garden.

      We thank you and your family for being more than just neighbours, but also being our friends.

      I know you all share our pain in the loss of such a wonderful man.

    Dear Neville,

    Both Aggie and you welcomed us when we moved here nearly 34 years ago with our month old baby.

    You were always there to give us help and advice not only on gardening but on all sort of things you knew about and if you didn’t know you would find out.
    You were like a walking encyclopedia full of useful information at hand when needed.

    You helped me learn a lot about sewing by showing me how to alter and repair my clothes I would sit and watch you work, you made it all look so easy, your calm and patient nature made it easy to learn, whenever I finished something I made I would go and show you to ask if it was done right, you were always very encouraging and complimented my work, I thank you for that it gave me the confidence to keep sewing and improving my work.

    You were so kind, calm, always smiling and laughing spending time chatting to you was so relaxing you would lift anyone’s spirit if they felt low.Your cheeky smile and contagious laughter will be remembered for ever.

    Rest in peace my dearest friend I will never forget you.

    Boys, Kenn, Glenn and Don, I am so very sorry for your loss , my deepest sympathy goes out to you, I feel your pain.

    You were very lucky to have such a fantastic person as your dad , rejoice in the knowledge he was loved and respected by all that knew him and he is now in the great garden of heaven enjoying the most beautiful flowers.

    We are always here if there is anything you need and we can help.

    We lost a very good friend. He will be sadly missed by us and will be remembered for his wonderful sense of humour and dedication to his family. A hero to them and an exemplary to us.

    Neville thanks for numerous photographic, music and Hi-Fi tips every time we met or talked over the phone since the late 60s.

    We are sure you are enjoying the beautifully blossoming Gardens with the Angels all around you (I hope you took your Nikon camera with you but I still think my Canon is better)

    Dear Don, Glenn, Kenn and family

    We are so saddened to hear of your loss. May god bless you all at this difficult time. Our thoughts are with you all. x

    For once I was actually lost for words. Its taken me days to be able to write something. We are all so devastated. Technically we were neighbours but in reality it was like we were all one big family.

    We all had a different type of bond with your father, dad had a best friend he could garden along side, mum had a dear friend who tought her sewing stuff and to me Neville was like a Granddad I never had.

    Your father was a truely amazing and caring person. His smile and laughter brought warmth into any conversation.

    In summer months I would return from work and Neville would always be in the garden, he would ask how my day had been. To anyone else I would usually moan but when I would see his happy smiling face Id think no i wont bring negativity into this converstaion and id start smiling and say my day was good instead. He was the only person that could ever have had that effect.

    We would then start talking about happy things, holidays, everything and anything. Oh the jokes and laughs we used to have. The secrets we shared and every converstaion would end with
    “See you later, Oh and Neville dont tell my Dad yeh”
    and he would smile back at me and laugh a little as if to say your secrets safe with me, I know you dont want your Dad to know!

    We would stand in the garden for ages. there were times when i would be bursting for the toilet or be off out and running late but we could never stop talking and laughing.

    Neville always gave me the best advice he introduced us to the which magazine, he used to give me advice on my career, getting on the property ladder, my relationships, how bad smoking was for me basically everything a father/granddad would talk to you about. The conversations I would have with Neville were the kind I always wished I could have with my Dad and Im glad I told him that on many occasions. Its really funny actually because he would say stuff that he had told my dad and i would say
    ‘well Neville next time drop this into your convo with dad.’
    and then we would just laugh about it all…

    One of the last long conversations I had with Neville we joked that if he saw me with a baby bump it would have been a big accident because i wasnt ready for kids yet. i loved my holidays and partying too much and he said
    ‘ok when i see u pregnant i’ll know it was a mistake.’
    and we just laughed

    One of my first memories was about age 5 Neville gave us a load of extremely nice party dresses. To me they were like wedding dresses but in bright colours, we used to play ‘weddings’ set the bedroom up with an isle and chairs either side and pretend i was getting married. This continued for years and years and mum would said to me theyre too small for you now but to me they were so amazing and Neville gave them to me.

    When I was young and home alone one night i was scared as i thought someone was in the garden and the dog wouldnt stop barking! It was 3am and i rang Neville he got out of his bed and went and checked the garden then rang me back to say there was nobody there and the dog was probably just lonely. He reassured me and told me not to worry and to sleep well. I apologised for bothering him and he said not to be silly anytime I could call him if i was scared. How amazing is that and how many people would get out of their bed at 3am to check the garden for you!

    I remember Neville would always take up my school uniform, my clothes and then my work
    uniform when i got older and he didnt mind nothing was too much trouble to him. Then he tought mum how to do it and i thank him for that because i still havent grown a single inch!

    Even about a year or two ago he saw the lining of my work skirt was longer than my skirt and he said
    ‘oh Belinda look at your skirt go inside take it off and bring it round to me.’
    It was so lovely of him to say that but i said
    ‘Neville its not even my correct uniform im not even allowed to wear this skirt to work’
    and we just laughed. I think he knew i was a lil rebel.

    So after all the years I turn into this young lady who enjoys partying, i remember a couple of times staggering home in broad day light at 8/9am and Neville was watering the garden….I held my head in shame as I walked down that long garden path of ours (hed known me since i was born i felt awful) but Neville didnt say anything or batter an eye lid. Its like he didnt judge. If i wasnt so embarassed and stopped to say hi, he probably would have asked if i had a good night and the jokes would have started – because thats how he was and what we always did.

    Both Neville and I would always say we didnt like the cold and it was always see you the next time the sun comes out :-) I just know that this summer coming home from work isnt going to be the same and i will so miss our conversations and the laughs we had surrounded by all the beautiful flowers Neville and dad would have planted.

    Dear Neville, You were there from the day mum gave birth to me, my christening, my holy communion, when i got my first car, i grew up with you always around.

    I really thought you would be at my wedding (like the wedding i used to pretend in the dresses you gave me) front row with the family becuase you was like family, I thought you would be there when i got pregnant (mistake or no mistake like we joked about) and i really looked forward to the day that i could tell you i got my dream job as an air hostess…….but sadly the angels took you from your family and us all too soon.

    I know that many will agree you were truely amazing all round. It was a pleasure to have had you as such a wonderful neighbour and friend for all my life.

    You leave me with memories i will treasure forever. I can still see your smile and hear your laugh.

    May you rest in peace and I know the angels will take care of you like you took care of everyone around you.

    With all my love.

    Agatha, Glen, Ken and Don,

    Many condolencies to the Jordan family on the sad loss of Neville who was a very inspirational man.
    The news of his passing came as a complete shock to us as we were not aware of his long illness.
    I would however, like to say on behalf of the Cross family and Tantie Lettie, that we will remember all the good times we had together, Neville’s helpful deeds, his words of wisdom and the caring person he was. His general knowledge, especially of the garden world and his infectious laughing will not be forgotton. You will be sadly missed, Neville.
    Rest in peace and the light of love be with you.

    Ken, Glenn and Don:Please accept our heartfelt condolenses on the loss of your dear Father. He will be sadly missed.
    Everyone who walked by his beautiful garden were treated to a warm and loving smile. He always said hello to strangers.
    But I remember his many chats about gardening, which will stay with me forever. His was kind, completely captivated with an audience that hung on his every word.
    I have known him for thirty-two years. A gifted tailor, he made bespoke suits to many leading figures, at his tailoring shop in New Bond Street.
    Everyone loved his infectious laugh.And his smile brought such joy to all.What a man.What a true family man.
    May the Lord bless and keep you all in His loving care.

    To the Jordan Family

    I did not know your dad very well. We would say “Hello” to each other if he was toiling the garden at the front of his house, whilst I was on my way to Preston Road. Last summer, he very kindly gave my daughter, who was around 3 at the time, one of his potted geraniums. Since then, she has developed a fascination for plants and trees. We are very sorry for your loss, but are thankful for your dad’s kindness. Thanks, also, for allowing us to share our small memory with you. God Bless you all.

    I will always remember Neville for his smile his friendly character his fantastic sons and his knowledge of music and Hi-Fi. He always made me feel welcome and it shows through his sons who I have known for mahy years. It was a pleasure to have known him and having lost my dad at a young age all I can say is remember the good times that you had with your Dad.

    Look after yourselves Lance

    It is a very great sadness to know that Neville has died. He gave so much pleasure to so many people, just by being the wonderful person he was. To me it was through his garden in Uxendon Crescent that I knew a little about him, and I send my sincere wishes for the comfort of his Family in their great loss.

    Since hearing of Nev’s passing I have been lost for words but full of memories. Memories that dates back from summer of 1970 when we first met, memories of numerous good times spent together, liming, working and partying.
    You were one of my early mentors. You employed me. You befriended me when I was a teenage immigrant with no friends or family in the UK. You reached out to help without being asked. You were always there for us – a true friend.
    You will be missed but we ain’t gonna come up too soon to see you, so enjoy the breeze up there and make those Angel wings fly my friend, make em fly… Your friend, Andrew

    Neville, You are sadly missed, and my heart goes out to the family and friends who feel a sense of loss and emptiness as I do. Your were truly inspirational, and when met from time to time, I just loved hearing about your outlook on life, and feeling that sense of positivity that you held within you. I truly respect the fact that you were a father in the true sense of the word, and that you, and the memories we all hold will live on in our hearts and minds forever more. Norman xx

    I welcome this opportunity to pay a short tribute to an exceptional person – a brother, an uncle, a father a friend to many who has been privileged to know him.

    Neville would want us to all celebrate his life and not mourn his passing. So, we celebrate the life of this first generation Trinidadian from Tunapuna, who battled on the front line, working tirelessly; long and hard hours to pave the way for the future generation, to give the boys a sound foundation; to prove himself; that he came to England to offer something tangible to this country.

    When Denise asked me to speak, she said, like me he was a tailor, well, I am not sure about that. I thought he was a photographer; or was he computer literate long before most people were bothered about PC’s or emails, or was he a motor enthusiast, a mechanic or family caravan driver. Some say he was a landscape gardener.

    Well, I say he was all of the above and much, much more.

    Neville understood the responsibilities of being a father and exercised those responsibilities until his last days.

    Nev., as he was respectfully and affectionately known has touched many hundreds of young people’s lives.

    There was another side to this great friend of ours that we pay tribute to; People saw Neville as fresh and lively a charming man with a ready smile and giggling while trying to tell a joke; always doing something practical, and always interesting; someone who did not crave attention for himself but encouraged others to distinguish themselves by leading them.

    When I think of Neville, I think of the word Enthusiasm. He was enthusiastic with just about everything he embarked upon. Anything Neville put his mind to he could excel at. And I guess, with his deep baritone voice if he chose to blow ah tune he would be good at it too. Well, Aggie did say to me he had a super bathroom voice – though we have no other witnesses to that…

    Neville spoke fluent ‘Tringlish’ that is, English with a Trinidad twang – Aggie is fluent in Grenglish that is English with a Grenadian accent. :–)

    He believed that within all its frailties, our very complex human nature has the capacity for forgiveness, compassion, dignity and love.

    Like many of us first generation immigrants we ran two or three jobs at the same time. I first became acquainted with Neville in 1970 when he gave me a Saturday job at the Squire Shop on the Kings Road. He paid me a handsome £6 a day. When you consider I was paid £12 a week on Savile Row, you could imagine how high that salary was. With his encouragement, it was no surprise that I left the Savile Row job to earn a massive £35 a week to work with Neville and Aggie. We worked hard and speedily, while eating big bags of Monkey nuts and enjoying coffee with too much condensed milk.

    Neville and Aggie and the boys became very close family friends and of course he was the obvious choice as godfather when David, our first child was born. And he Aggie and the boys would spend many Christmas’s and birthday celebrations with us as a family. Neville and I would rush to be the first to call each other immediately after midnight on Old Year’s night to wish each other a happy New Year.

    It was Neville who drove me all around Wembley and Harrow in 1977/78 in search for our house in which we subsequently lived for nearly 30 years.

    When the BBC 1 featured my own story on Black Firsts in 1998, it was Neville Jordan whom I named as my mentor.

    He was very kind, considerate, and understanding, a man who’ll always cheer you up with his optimism and offer help if needed.

    He always sang my praises.

    Working with Neville enabled me to save enough money to attend London College of Fashion full time which I would not have been able to afford as a foreign student. And of course not become the proud owner of my own business in Savile Row.

    I say here to you all, without reservation, if it weren’t for Neville, my friend, my mentor, I would not be standing proudly here today to pay tribute to him.

    I speak for all those that you have inspired, befriended and encouraged.

    Neville…You made a difference!

    WE THANK YOU for being with us

    Don & Family:

    Death is nothing at all.
    I have only slipped away to the next room.
    I am I and you are you.
    Whatever we were to each other,
    That, we still are.

    Call me by my old familiar name.
    Speak to me in the easy way
    which you always used.
    Put no difference into your tone.
    Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.

    Laugh as we always laughed
    at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
    Play, smile, think of me. Pray for me.
    Let my name be ever the household word
    that it always was.
    Let it be spoken without effect.
    Without the trace of a shadow on it.

    Life means all that it ever meant.
    It is the same that it ever was.
    There is absolute unbroken continuity.
    Why should I be out of mind
    because I am out of sight?

    I am but waiting for you.
    For an interval.
    Somewhere. Very near.
    Just around the corner.
