Dear Sarah, growing up in the 80s, you were central to our upbringing. I have many fond memories of you racing down the school drive in your red Scirocco, playing 40-40 at Manor Cottage until after dark, Wimbledon barbecues, roaring with laughter at our synchro swimming to Billy Ocean at prize day (not great timing to catch your eye), rocking a hat at any wedding, generous Coco Chanel pressies, and - ahead of your time - opening our eyes to the fact that it’s not just ok to be a firm-minded woman, it is necessary x

Dear Sarah! We lived next door in Betchworth and she was a huge part of our childhood. That's Olivia, Meirion, myself, Jonathan and Briony. We loved having the Prices next door. Great friends. And Sarah was so warm, strong, so very much our ally. So independent, so splendidly anti-establishment. Always in our corner. Except when our dog ate their Christmas turkey. And she forgave us that pretty quickly. And such a great friend to our mother, Eiluned, who loved her dearly. We were all blessed to have her in our lives. Masses of love and the tightest of hugs to Richard, Harriet and Katharine.

I have fond memories of visiting my cousin Sarah when I was in the U.K., the last time in Nov. 1991, with my Mum, Esther-Anne Melland, or "Auntie Boo" as Sarah called her, using her nickname from Mummy's childhood days. Sending fondest love to you all from Canada, Phoebe Campbell.(nee Melland)

Sarah was such a loving, interesting and intelligent woman and will be missed greatly. To have created such a fabulous family is such a watermark to her life.
Sending you all our love from your cousins, the Sydney branch of the Bells. Chris, Lynsey, Darcey, Piper and Otis

Sarah was an integral part of our childhood growing up in Betchworth, her door was always open to us. She was a very dear friend of our mother, Cynnie Hill, and along with Eiluned Slot they made up a lunch club affectionately known as "The Mangles". Sarah was a huge support after we lost our mother in 2002 and though she was less in our lives after her move to Newark, we were always glad to see her when she came back to visit. Thinking of you all at this sad time.

I first met Sarah in 1985, when I began work at New House Surgery. I was their first Practice Nurse.
Sarah was a wonderful support and friend to me throughout the years we worked together. She was amazing. Ferocious yet caring. Angry yet so funny. She really was " unique" I will never forget her, nor the kindness she showed me when I was the nervous new girl !
My condolences and love to Richard, Harriet and Katharine.
( Hopefully Harriet or Katharine may remember me, I will always remember their super Mum !)

We are all better for having had Sarah in our lives. Welcome to her Great-Grand-Son Henry! Through all of Sarah's friends you will get to know her.

Growing up with the Price family was awesome. Birthdays were usually spent together. We had so much fun and I have soo many happy memories. Sarah was also such a role model to me. She absolutely inspired me to do medicine. I have fond memories of hovering near the phone when she was on call desperate for it to ring. She even snuck me out on a couple of house calls. She was a constant extra mum through my life. And through the pandemic was such a great support as she could understand much of what we were going through in the NHS. Photo is from one of our many Wimbledon parties. Sending love to all. Anna xxx

In 2002 cousin Sarah visited us in Melbourne, and we loved the opportunity to return some of the hospitality we had had from her in Betchworth. Among other things:
- I took her to watch the Melbourne Cup (I had booked good seats near the winning post)
- She went to Far North Queensland with her friend from Betchworth who had moved to Melbourne, Mary Ryllis Clark
- She visited my mother Esther-Anne Melland née Marshall in New South Wales
- She went "glamping" (glamorous camping) in the Red Centre - near Uluru (once Ayers Rock).
