Final Arrangements for Funeral of Club President Robert ("Bob") Grange

Posted by Paul Drake on Thursday, 5th April 2018 at 1:45pm


The service is on Thursday 12th April at 14:30 at

St Michaels & All Angels Church
Violet Ln

Afterwards, a celebration with refreshments at Creaton Village Hall. Teeton Lane, Creaton.


Fellow fencers are encouraged to join our guard of honour as the coffin is carried into the church.

We will be wearing normal funeral attire, but carrying our fencing mask under our (non-sword) arm, and wearing a fencing glove, holding a sword aloft in salute to our fallen comrade as he passes by on his final journey


Some of us intend to arrive early (13:45 ish) to give us an opportunity to ensure we all understand what we will be doing.


We hope you can come along, but Bob would understand if you can’t make it.


Tomorrow evening, fencing as usual. 

Instead of sending flowers, the Fencing Club will be having a collection in aid of the Northamptonshire Air Ambulance, of which Bob was a great supporter. All donations welcome.
