rose.jpg Dennis Holyland RIP
  We have received the very sad news that Dennis Holyland passed away last Friday as a result of Covid related symptoms.

Dennis was a larger than life character who graced Dial Irwell House for many years as part of the Private Wire Empire and for many of those years was based on 5th floor Irwell House

His unmistakable Liverpudlian accent and love of Liverpool FC together with his fantastic sense of humour made such a wonderful impression on so many people over the years. It was always such a pleasure for those lucky enough have spent time in his company. Dennis truly did brighten up the room with his presence.

Unfortunately in these times funeral arrangements and attendance is not straightforward but if and when we get details we will post them.

We now have the funeral arrangements and we have been told all welcome but only 30 people are allowed inside for the service.

WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 2nd at 10:00 am

candles.jpg Farewell Dave Turton
  Dave’s wife Ivy and daughter Amanda sent me the very sad news that he passed away suddenly last Monday the 12th October.

He left BT in the mid 1990’s on release; then worked part time at B&Q Bury where I know he enjoyed bumping into former colleagues for a chat.

I had the absolute pleasure of working with Dave on various occasions in the 1980 90’s when he worked in the ADCO & Datel Planning offices moving latterly to Customer Network Operations Project Management all based in Telephone House Manchester. Previously he had worked on external works groups around the Greater Manchester telephone area.

He was a true gentleman extremely knowledgeable and always great company.

The funeral is arranged for Monday the 26th October at Radcliffe Crematorium; due to current restrictions it will be strictly family only in attendance.

flowers2.jpg Farewell Dave Edwards
  Jeff Horsfall has been in touch with the sad news of Dave's death.


I received a telephone call from Dave Armstrong to inform that Dave Edwards from Macclesfield sadly passed away on Friday 16th October 2020 shortly after his 70th birthday. He was in Macclesfild hospital suffering from sepsis.

Before retiring Dave was a Customer Service engineer working for Openreach in the Macclesfield area. He also used to cover the PABX customers around Macclesfield Congleton and surrounding areas. His wife Geraldine died some years ago but he leaves two daughters and grandchildren who are sure to miss him. RIP Dave.

Although only 30 people are allowed to attend the service due to Covid rules other people who wish to attend can stand outside to show their respects. The facility to set up a Zoom call can also be arranged should anyone want to attend remotely.

wreath.jpg Farewell Ralph Brownell
 John Coop contacted us with the sad news of Ralph's death.

Sad news I'm afraid.

Ralph died last week after suffering with a twisted bowel problem.

He worked on Trunk Test in Dial House in the 1960-s and was promoted to lev1 on External Planning.

No funeral information but with the current situation I would imagine it is family and close friends only.

Cheers for now

candles.jpg Farewell Frank Rowbotham
  It is with great sadness I have to announce the death of my good friend Frank. His wife Jean informed me that he passed away peacefully on 19 th September. It was due to complications following a heart attack.
Frank started out on maintenance at Trafford exchange then followed many years on Telex . Both at York Street and Dial House. When that closed he ended up having to work for a living on a Broadband Provision.

Frank's funeral will be next week at Agecroft. Due to Government restrictions though it is unlikely that any of his friends and colleagues will be allowed to attend.
