George Barnsby 1919 - 2010

April 11th 2010

It is with great sadness and regret that the family have to announce the passing of George Barnsby at 2.13 am today in Newcross Hospital, Wolverhampton. As you all know, he had been ill for some months and last week he developed a chest infection, that by yesterday, had turned into pneumonia. His family were all at his bedside when he passed away, and he did not suffer.

The family would like to announce that George's funeral will be held on Thursday April 29th at 11.30am at Bushbury Crematorium, Wolverhampton,  East Chapel. This will be a Humanist Ceremony conducted by Wendy Weavin. There will also be a wake/celebration/social gathering afterwards at a venue to be arranged. We will post further details when available. Could we ask anybody who wishes to attend the funeral to e-mail the family beforehand, either on the blog or to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
