Book Of Remembrance

This page contains information about past members of the County who have “Gone Home”.

The details and information of past members who have been recorded in this Book of Remembrance have been resourced from Orders of Service, including Eulogies and Tributes presented by family members and Scouting colleagues, and from obituary reports in past County and District News editions.

If you have any further information or have a copy of the Service Sheet or photograph of the person concerned that can be added please get in touch.

Foreword by Capt. Don Woodhouse OBE County Chaplain

Within the Scout family our lives are touched by the dedication and example of those who have encouraged and guided us and been truly role models.
Though they ‘have gone home’ we are grateful and know that in a real way they continues to be a blessing.

With the pace of modern life it can be easy to forget former Leaders and friends but anniversary events do remind us of them.

A book of Remembrance is an important way of continuing to give thanks and under God it can be a dynamic for action and service.

It is a truth that God works through the lives and example of others, out of gratitude we too are called as adopted words from the Scout Hymn puts it –

Lord makes me fit to serve
With all my heart
And in your service I would
Play my part.

This “Book of Remembrance” will grow with additional names and information and I am sure as a loving tribute to those who have “Gone Home”.

This foreword remains here as an introduction to the Book of Remembrance although Don Woodhouse has “Gone Home”.

The entries in this Book of Remembrance are arranged in order of surname. Click on each name to see their obituary [providing one has been received]. 

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
