It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of our journal editor, friend and colleague Edward Klempka on Thursday 12 December 2019. The news came today from his daughter Isobel who has shared funeral details below. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Lois, daughters Caroline, Isobel, Faye, grandchildren and family. He will be truly missed.

The funeral will be held at All Saints Parish Church, Ilkley on 30th December at 11am.  Rather than flowers the family ask that donations be sent to Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice, who cared for Edward in his final days.

The BSRP will make a donation to the hospice in Edward’s name.
