Funeral of 22602857 Mike Chapman

31 October 2018


It is with great sadness that I must report the death of 22602857 Mike Chapman who recently passed away after a very short illness.

Mike had been a member of the Bristol Branch for many years and had served on the Branch Committee for some considerable time. He involved himself tirelessly in Branch affairs and was always one of the first to volunteer when help was needed. At Grenadier Day Mike would often be found serving cider on the Branch stall where his ready wit and humour boosted sales enormously.

As well as the Bristol Branch losing a great friend, Mike will also be sadly missed by his colleagues among the Bristol taxi driving fraternity as well as his many associates and friends within the licensing trade in the City and his many friends at Bristol City Football Club. All Grenadiers are invited to both Mike's funeral which will take place on Friday 16th November at South Bristol Crematorium, Bridgwater Road, Bedminster Down, Bristol, BS13 7AS, and also afterwards at Bristol City Football Club, Ashton Gate, Bristol, BS3 2EJ.
