Just recieved these details from Rowland Jnr


Hi Les,

Dad’s ceremony will take place in Lawnswood at 14:20 on Friday 23rd MarchThere will be an announcement in Monday’s Yorkshire Evening Post.
His widow from his second marriage is making all the arrangements so sorry I can’t be more specific, but all are welcome.

He has requested that no flowers be sent, and that donations be made to St Gemma’s Hospice.

Not sure if mum will attend, but his first family are arranging a memorial evening for Saturday 12th May at the Lakeside Cafe in Roundhay Park. Dad and I were due to go for lunch there a few weeks ago, but he was taken ill and was unable to leave St James Hospital.
