Jeremy Page - Order of Service - photo (119x170)
Jeremy Page (K62-70) died on 28th August 2018, aged 67 years, after a long battle with Alzheimers. There is a YouTube video, which shows a short BBC South interview with Jeremy and Josephine in 2015.  The interview clearly shows Jeremy’s fortitude.

The funeral was held on 14th September at St Saviour’s Church, Brockenhurst, close to his recent home. He is survived by his wife, Josephine, together with a son and a daughter and two stepsons. 

There will be a full obituary in the Yearbook but you can see a link to the order of service here.  The OFs were well represented, with Tim Bailey, James Wheildon, Chris Marsh (plus wife, Fenny), John Washtell (plus wife, Anne), Maurice Wonnacott, Michael Barrett, and Peter Barker all present.
