I am writing to inform your members of the recent passing of William Thomas Purdy, (PC Bill Purdy), of 34 The Cunnery, Kirk Langley, Derbyshire.
Bill served at BTP Derby up until his retirement in the 1980s and passed away peacefully on 31st October, aged 84 after a short illness.
The funeral service will be held this Friday 22nd November, 1.40 pm at Markeaton Crematorium, Ashbourne Road, Derby.
I would appreciate it if you could post the above information on your website news section, as I have been unable to trace any of my late uncle's colleagues from the force.
