Funeral Arrangements

As at the time of writing Derek’s funeral is planned to be a very low key affair with just a handful of friends and family present. It is hoped that a memorial service will be held in the spring of 2022 when COVID restrictions are lifted and everyone is safer. Derek was a firm supporter of the NHS and did everything within his power to ‘stop the spread’.

Should anyone wish to send flowers please watch this space for details and further information.


Derek’s funeral was very private with just family and a handful of friends present. Later on, in May 2022 a get together was held in the West End for 20-30 close friends and acquaintances. The day was was filled with stories and memories shared by all who were present and we all raised a glass to our friend who had given opportunities to a countless number of actors throughout his career.
