cross.jpg Farewell Doug Whelan
 Bob Tattersall contacted us with this sad news.

It is with great sadness that I received the following news from Paul Whelan, Doug's brother this Sunday evening.

He told me that Doug passed away peacefully in his sleep probably friday or saturday night at his home in Woodley, Stockport.

Doug worked on Manchester South area on PABX Mtce for many years,he then retired in the mid 90s and worked in Oman for the Government on telecoms duties.

He then came back and became a stalwart of the golf society and a vociferous Man U and fitness fan.

He left a grown up son and daughter and grandchildren
Doug was well liked...the life and soul of an evening out, his friends will miss him terribly.

Doug was 68...RIP old pal...
There will probably be an autopsy due to the suddenness of his passing...details to follow.

Once Bob gets back to us with the funeral details We will add them to the notice.

aerial.jpg Mike Baines trying to contact Jane
 I've lost contact with an old friend from BT and I'm slightly concerned.

She worked at Church Street from about 1969 until she took early retirement about 5-10 years ago.

Her maiden name was Jane Nuttall and she had a couple of married names which I cannot recall. I think one was Abbott?

She will be about 62/63 now and I lost e-mail contact with her about 5 years ago.

If anyone can help please get in touch using the contact page.

notice.jpg Arthur Cottam
 Hi, seen in the MEN from the 30th March 2015

Police appeal

Can you help police trace the relatives of a man from Eccles?

They are trying to trace the family of 77-year-old Arthur Cottam who was sadly found dead at his Peel Green Road home on Saturday.

There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.

Call the police coroners officer on 0161 856 4687 with any information.

Arthur worked at Pendleton Telephone Exchange for some 30 years as TO on exchange maintenance with my Dad, John Faulkner. Despite that we know relatively little about Arthur, just remembering him as a very polite and always helpful chap, sad to see such a request though.

wreath.jpg Farewell Bill Ravenscroft
 Geoff Plevin contacted us with this sad news.

I heard this morning from a relative that lived near Bill that Bill had died last week and his funeral took place yesterday (19/3/15).

People may remember Bill from working in RSC's in Bury and I think Cheetham Hill. He later worked as a manager at Altrincham RSC and the at the Customer Contact Centre in Church ST. RIP Bill.
