Bill Russell funeral arrangements

19 June 2012

It is with great sadness and regret that the union announces the passing of Bill Russell, former ASLEF executive committee member and Secretary of District Four. Bill died recently after a short illness.

Bill's funeral will take place on Monday 25 June at 11:50 in Chesterfield Crematorium, Brimington, Chesterfield, and afterwards at the Hollingwood.

The family have requested no flowers, but a collection will be taken after the funeral for a donation in Bill's name to be sent to the Special Care Baby Unit at Chesterfield hospital.

Mick Whelan, ASLEF's general secretary, said, 'Bill was a well-respected trade union official who carried out his work for the union with dedication. He will be genuinely missed by all this colleagues and his many friends.

'I hope members who remember Bill will take the time to pay their respects at his funeral and recognise the contribution that he made to ASLEF and the wider trade union movement.'
