Peter Stringer Esq. Funeral 03 Sept 2020

Funeral 03 Sept 2020
His grandson Ryan Stringer whom I first met in 2000 (now a fine looking gentleman) read  our BCS school prayer which his Grandad ( Peter) would’ve liked.  Ryan also wore Peter Sahib’s OCA UK Tie (that he designed whilst I was in the UK), BCS tie bar and cufflinks (pic attached).
Peter was cremated wearing his BCS Blazer, OCA UK  tie and BCS tie bar.
The family expressed immense gratitude to see the School
Flag at half mast, a lovely touch and well received by all members. Explicitly Thanking Director Simon Weale för this gesture that coincided with the nation mourning the passing of President Pranab Mukerjee.
Warmest Wishes and Kindest Regards

Dear Maggie,

Our thoughts are with you and all your family, as we bid farewell to Peter and give our thanks for his life, with his dedication and love for BCS and his many friends from there. He will be remembered and missed by us all.
We are sorry not to be there with you, to pay him our last respects. May your many happy memories together, give you strength to bear your sad loss.

With our fondest love,

Gay and Christine xx


Dear Ryan,

I wanted to make sure our message to your Grandmother reached her, so I am forwarding the original message.
You will be reading a prayer from the School, which I am sure your Grandfather would have appreciated. We hope the Service goes well and really are sorry not to be with you.
Your Grandfather was a great friend to me and countless Old Cottonians, supporting and caring for them, as he did for his beloved School.
I will keep in touch with your Grandmother but need your confirmation of her ongoing address, telephone numbers and current e-mail.
With my fond good wishes to you and all your family,
Yours affectionately,
Gay Niblett
