Funeral of 2628634 Robert Britton

6 April 2018



Sadly I must report the death of 2628634 Robert Britton, who passed away peacefully in his own home on Wednesday 28th March, at the age of 89.

His Son writes:

His passing was unexpected and will leave a huge void in our lives, he leaves us with a lifetime of memories as a loving and devoted Husband to my Mum Eva who is a resident in the Royal British Legion Lister House next door to the family home. He was a wonderful Dad to my sister Fiona and me and a caring Grandad.

His funeral service will be held at 1100hrs on Tuesday 10th April in Ripon Cathedral where there will be a formal civic presence recognizing his contribution and service to Ripon as a former councilor, Mayor and Honorary Freeman. This will be followed by a reception at The Old Deanery, Ripon.

Dad had many happy reflections of his time in the Grenadier Guards and I know he valued the ongoing communications through you [Yorkshire Branch] regarding former fellow serving Grenadiers.
