A South Yorkshire couple described as ‘soul mates’ died within three days of each other – after 60 years of marriage.

Jean and Alf Hepinstall, both aged 82, and of Cranfield Gardens, Royston, Barnsley, had a joint funeral service and cremation on Thursday.

Their heartbroken daughter, Adele Ramsden, said: “On one hand, it is heartbreaking to lose both parents, but consoling to know they just had to go together.”

Their funeral service was held at Royston Methodist Church, followed by cremation at Ardsley.
