Death certificate

Have your say

I was very interested to read Mr H’s letter regarding football funeral cards.

They persisted into the 1970s. I recollect a black-edged one given to my father George to commemorate/commiserate the fall from grace of Sheffield Wednesday in April 1970 on a rain-lashed Hillsborough night.

It referred to a ‘death certificate signed by Dr Andrew Stephen’ and ‘witnessed by Mr Eric Taylor’ before a crowd of 45,000.

One must still be around somewhere.
