PHOTOGRAPHER Stan Bulmer Snr, who was greeted by Barnsley fans at Oakwell with chants of “Stanley, Stanley, give us a wave”, has waved a final goodbye. He has died - aged 78.

One of South Yorkshire’s best loved and respected former news and wedding photographers, he worked for many years on the weekly regional title, The Barnsley Chronicle.

Stan, originally from the Filey area, lived in Royston, near Barnsley. He died after a short illness at Sheffield’s Northern General Hospital, on Thursday night.

He leaves a widow, Ada, son, Stan, daughter-in-law Michelle and grandson Bradley.

His funeral will be at St John’s Church, Church Street, Royston, Barnsley, on Monday, March 14, at 2.15pm. That will be followed by a cremation at Ardsley Crematorium and a reception at the Best Western Ardsley House.

The Star’s Digital Editor, Graham Walker, today said: “Stan was one of the industry’s most colourful characters, a brilliant photographer, a fantastic newsman and above all a great friend.”
