Recording Deceased Pensioners.

I may  record details of Deceased Pensioners in the database as it is likely that a member could search for someone who has died and an notification of death would be preferable to no record. 


I have now created a list of deceased pensioners compiled from past editions of CAWPA News, this list is too large to place in the database so it is contained in a separate Protected webpage  and requires members to login for access. Deceased List Here Not a Member? then Register Here.

Ronald Ferguson: His daughter Susan's email follows -

Ronald Ferguson, sadly passed away on 7th January of this year.
Dad worked for C and W from the 1950s - 1970s and we think he used to receive a hardcopy of CWC Pensions News.
You may therefore wish to add Ron’s name to your list of ex-colleagues, who are now deceased. We would be happy to hear from anyone who knew dad from the ‘good old days’.

My father’s funeral is to take place next Thursday, 28th January at Surrey and Sussex Crematorium at 11.15 a.m. In the unlikely event that any of my dad’s former colleagues are still alive (as he was always telling us that all of his ex-colleagues were dead now) is there any way you could forward this to anyone who may have worked with him in London?
I am most grateful for any assistance you might be able to give us.

Yours sincerely

Susan Ferguson Susan <miss.ferguson@virgin.net>
