The funeral of a popular cobbler in Twickenham is set to take place today (August 16)

Anthony Mumford, 53, was on his way home from work when he fell from his e-scooter on Heath Road in Twickenham.

Tony ran Toes-Knees Shoe Repairs on Church Street in Twickenham for 15 years.

He had been in a coma but was taken off life support one week after the accident on July 22.

It has been confirmed that the funeral service will be held at 1pm on Monday at Easthampstead Park Crematorium, followed by a reception at Easthampstead Park Hotel.

There will also be a funeral procession along Church Street, Twickenham at 11am.

Those who would like to pay their last respects have been invited to join his family on Church Street for his "final journey".

The much-loved cobbler is known for his "big heart and kindness", according to a fundraiser page.

Family, friends, residents and customers have raised £15,584 to help his partner Cheryl give him "the funeral he deserves".

Tributes have poured in on GoFundMe from his customers.

One said: "Tony was a lovely man. No job was ever too much trouble. He was so kind and generous.

"It was often a struggle to get him to take money for work he'd done. I will miss him. Sending love to his family."

Another person said: "Tony was always so helpful, was highly skilled, and gave great straightforward advice. It was a pleasure to visit his shop."

One lady praised him for his support towards her disability.

"Such sad news. Having a disability, Tony always worked his magic to build up my shoes which made my walking a pleasure.

"A true craftsman and a top guy, I will miss him very much. Rest in peace Tony."
