janet cass

It is with great sadness that we report the death of Janet Cass who died on 29th August 2022.

She was a Vice President of the Marlborough Dramatic Club.

We extend our sympathy to the family and friends.

The funeral is on Monday 3 October, 1.30pm at St Peters Church, South Weald, then at The Eagle pub, Kelvedon Hatch - CM15 0AA. In a change to previous information, family only will attend a private service at Bentley Crematorium immediately after St Peters Church, and will join the rest of the mourners at The Eagle in due course. Family flowers only please and donations to charity would be most gratefully received with more information available at the service about which organisations have been chosen.


As an actress and director of legend, Janet Cass was a much loved member of the Marlborough over many decades. Artistically gifted, her talents as a comedic actress and award winning singer (Brentwood Operatic Society) gave pleasure to many.

As a director she had great understanding of her craft which she imparted to her casts. “Noises Off” was one of the most memorable of her productions.

Jan was also a stage makeup artist - especially in enhancing the male actors!!
Her abundant floral displays at front of house were much admired by audiences awaiting “curtain up”.

She will be remembered with enormous affection by all who knew and worked with her.
