JC has informed us of the very sad news that Bernie passed away last night 24th January 2012.

Bernard Stephen Crossland 1962 -1988

Our condolences go to the family.

Funeral details (via JC) from Dave Winstanley, Bernie's nephew:

Bernie's funeral is next Thursday, 2nd February at 9.30am. It will be a mass at Christ the King church which is on Amos Ave, Newton Heath, Manchester, M40. It will then be followed by his cremation at Hollinwood Crematorium, Roman Road Hollinwood. OL8 3LU I assume around 10.30am.

Anyone is welcome to come into my Mums before hand, anytime from 8.30 for a drink. Her address is;

2 Lambeth Rd,
Newton Heath
Manchester
M40 2RG

The wake will then be held at Newton Heath Cricket Club, Mabel Street, Newton Heath, M40 1GB just off Daisey Bank. I assume from around 11.30.

Family flowers only.

If anybody would like to act as a pallbearer for Bernie can you please inform HHQ(N) If you are going to attend can you also let HHQ(N) know so that numbers can be worked out for the reception. If you call 01772 260310 before Tuesday 28th JC will pass it on to the family.Image

This is terrible news, especially coming so soon after hearing about Stan.

I shared a room with him in Warminster and he drove me crazy with his Country & Western music but what a great guy he was. Always calm, a wicked sense of humour and an all round good Hawk.

He will be sadly missed by all of us.

R.I.P Bernie

Sad News,

A great bloke, he was my commander for a while in A Squadron, no shouting, no bother just got on with it

RIP Bernie, my condolences to Bernies Family and Close Friends.
