Thanks to the efforts of friends (and no thanks to the authorities), Richard's sister and niece have been traced. They have made arrangements for his funeral. Richard was 66 when he died of a heart attack on 1st June at his Crouch Hill home while awaiting a triple bypass heart operation.
The funeral will take place on Friday 5th December at 11:45 at Islington Crematorium, High Road, East Finchley N2 9AG. Everyone who knew Richard is welcome to attend. The crematorium is located in the middle of a very large cemetery - about 25 mins walk from the main gates and bus stops. Nearest station is East Finchley (about a mile from the main gates). There is ample parking at the crematorium, and a taxi office by East Finchley station. Further information can be found on the Crematorium website.
