It is with much sadness that  I report that Chief Officer(TA) Graham Ferguson RFA(Retd)(Member 0106)  Crossed the Bar on Monday 4th April  2022 at his Dorchester home with his long time partner. The arrangements for Graham's funeral are being made by Grassby Funeral Service (HERE for their website and HERE for a map))

Graham will be interred, with his partner at  Higher Grounds Meadow Natural Burial Site (HERE for their website and HERE for a map) on Tuesday 10th April 2022 at 12:00.

Family Flowers only please, but donations in lieu and if desired, should be made to Mental Health Research (HERE for their website) or as coordinated by the funeral directors.

Former shipmates and colleagues attending the funeral will be invited to join the family afterwards.

On behalf of the RFA Association and all Graham's former shipmates and colleagues  I offer our sincere condolences.

If you have any remembrances of Graham please email it to me at captain.pat@rfa-association.org.uk and I will post them on this page. Alternatively you can post to our facebook page "RFA Crossed the Bar". I am also looking for photographs of Graham  for this piece and the RFA Association Gallery and Archive, if you have one please email it to me.
