Bernard (Bernie) Mcdonough – 28.12.55 to 06.06.19

Hi All,

The funeral of Bernie Mcdonough took place at Crewe Crematorium Chapel on Tuesday 25th June.

Well over 100 people attended the service to pay their respects to Bernie.

There were no hyms, just the music  from popular TV puppet programmes from yesteryear…. THUNDERBIRDS, STINGRAY and JOE 90.

The service ended with the sound of 40181 blasting out of Manchester Piccadilly on 15/09/84 after it worked the last Skegness to Manchester service.

Thank you to DAVE WOOD, HOWARD GREEN, COLIN HINDLE and ROB LORTON who handed me CASH DONATIONS in the RAVEN PUB IN CREWE following the funeral.

I understand that some other donations have been pledged, one being a chunky £2,000.

Thank you to everyone who did attend the funeral service for our good pal Bernie Mcdonough and thank you to everyone who has or intends to send donations to the CFPS in memory of Bernie.


John Stephens
