This came from Viv Head, BTP History Society.
I have learnt from the website of Basildon Rugby Club (where Barrie was Vice-President) that he has recently died. There are no contact numbers on the site and the club is currently closed.
I have been trying to contact the family by getting in touch with the five Basildon funeral directors as well as the crematorium. None have any record. I will try again towards the end of the week.
If anyone does have any information to help please let me know.
Any information to me via my E Mail please which can be found in the Members directory
