Following the tragic deaths in Southampton recently of Alan Bannon and James Shears I can now confirm that funeral services have now been arranged as follows:
Alan Bannon's funeral service will take place at St. Mary's Church in St. Mary's Street, Southampton, Hampshire, on Tuesday, 27 April at 2pm. The funeral will be followed by a private committal service.
James Shears' funeral service will take place at St. George's Church in Darby's Lane, Oakdale in Poole, Dorset, at 11am on Friday, 30 April. This will be followed by a private cremation at Poole Crematorium, which will be attended by the family, friends, and close colleagues.
At the request of the families, both will be Fire & Rescue Service funerals.
