Hi All please see below
I have been informed via NARPO of the passing of the below :
Peter John CAIN, who served at Garston Dock and Liverpool, sadly passed away on 9th November 2019 believed aged 94.
No other details are known at this time.
Information from John Bryant
Good Morning all.
I have been advised by FHQ that the new Chief Constable to replace Paul Crowther will be Deputy Assistant Commissioner MPD Lucy D'Orsi..
If you log onto the BTP website there is a entry about the new chief constable which has a full resume of the appointment.
"I have today received the sad news from Dave Breen (Via Facebook) that Betty Nuttall has passed away in the Nursing Home that she has been in for a number of years. I am advised that she was taken ill and admitted to hospital but was later returned to the Nursing Home. Betty was on the same recruit course at Tadworth with me in 1961 and she spent her whole career until retirement, in Manchester. She was a regular attender at the NW Retired Officer lunches in Liverpool until she took ill and was admitted to the Nursing Home. As soon as I have any further details I will let you know."
I have today recieved a letter from the wife of Geoffrey SCAMBLER to say that he sadly passed away after a short illness at Lancaster Royal Infirmary on 7th November 2019, aged 93 years. He retired in 1985 as an inspector at Manchester Piccadilly. Rest in Peace Geoffrey.
Mark Birch's funeral takes place at Sutton Coldfield Crematorium on Monday 9th November.
Obviously in view of the current restrictions the number of attendees is limited to 30, the majority of whom will be family members, but a few serving officers (including Chief Constable Crowther) and retired officers/staff will also attend - including Dave Jones and Paul Majster.
It is a continuing shame that former colleagues who knew and worked with Mark cannot attend his funeral but such are the times in which we live.
For those who knew Mark, I understand that his funeral service will be streamed live by the crematorium at Sutton Coldfield on Monday next. Log in details are
