Death Notifications

At the moment, with our normal face-to-face Society meetings on hold, there did not seem to be a correct manner to pass on the news of the death of a member. Social media does not seem to be the respectful way of doing so and some of our members are not signed up for the monthly e-newsletter, so we thought that  page on the website might be the answer.

Here we will pass on any news that we receive concerning the death of one of our members or of a Caley Medal holder.

If you have a notification that you would like to pass on, please email Julie:
