Roy Harris's funeral will take place on Tuesday 1st March at 11am
at Thornhill Crematorium (Wenallt Chapel), Thornhill Rd, Cardiff CF14 9UA

There will be a celebration of his life afterwards from 12 at
The West End Social Club
348 Cowbridge Rd West,
Cardiff CF5 5BY
Phone:029 2059 4004

Donations in lieu of flowers to the NSPCC please. There will be a box for donations on the day.

There is no dress code so come casual, come formal, come as you are comfortable, but please come. We've booked the concert hall in the club which we can have until 6pm but we can use the lounge bar after that if we want to. The family want to create a folk club atmosphere so please bring a song, an instrument, a memory. However, to organise refreshments it would be helpful (though not compulsory) if you could let us know if you are planning to attend.

On a practical note, there is a small car park behind the club, also there is a small Tesco opposite with a little car park and a block away there is a Lidl/Homebargains with a huge car park. There is also some street parking nearby.

Please share these details widely. Webcast details to follow.

Hello Neil,

Do you want us to let you know through Mudcat whether we're coming, or another channel?

I will certainly be there, and Mike O'Leary-Johns has kindly arranged a lift to the crem from the station. Unfortunately I have to get a train back up North at ten to four, but that will still give me three hours at the celebration - and I certainly plan to sing.

Hello Brian... .I will ensure that you can sing early on.
I will check with the people who have to leave early to make sure they do not lose out. I can have a chat with you before things start.
