Baz's funeral will take place on Tuesday 6th January at 3pm. The service will be at Oakley Wood Crematorium near Leamington with a wake afterwards we're not sure where yet. Just wanted to let people know as soon as possible of the date and will let you know Val's wishes as soon as I can.   It goes without saying that all are welcome.

Helen here using Mark's log in. I have provisionally arranged for a bus so if all those wishing to attend could let me know asap I would appreciate it. My phone number is 07842 681876
Obviously if there aren't enough people for a bus then we will arrange a car sharing option for those wishing to go but unable or reluctant to drive such a long way. Let me know what you would all like to do and I will sort it all out.

Helen here again ! A few further details. Scarlets shirts to be worn (either yellow or red) at Val's request. Family flowers only but for anyone wishing to make a donation, Barry's chosen charities are The Dog's Trust and Crys 16 with the money split equally between the two.

I'm completely gutted but I wont be able to make the funeral due to work commitments first week back.

As this is a fairly new section, I've renamed it honour of our Baz and included these two theads as announcements for everyone to see.

I'll be there to pay my respects. I thought it may be a problem through H&S but the client has allowed me to close the site if I cannot find cover.

   I hope as many fellow supporters as possible can make it to Baz his funeral which will have a Welsh theme .

To think of the miles he put in with his beloved wife Val to support his beloved Scarlets it really was something special !!

Sorry - not used to this ! Helen here again. A minute's silence has been requested and I was told at Parc y Scarlets that they would ask. Not hopeful though as I think it might set a bit of a precedent.

Val, all,
 
I wish I could be there to pay my respects on Tuesday.  I'm sure he would want you all to raise a glass and smile about the times spent in his company.
 
It feels very little as a mark of respect truth be told, but I'll be wearing my Scarlets shirt to work on Tuesday.  #forBaz

Just to let you know that whoever is there from us as supporters will be singing Sosban Fach during the service without the assistance of a organ or such like. Thanks to Helen and her assistance quite a few of us are making our way up on Tuesday. I spoke to Val earlier and it seems that a totally fitting service has been put in place . A real friend to all.

A safe journey to all and I hope everything goes without a hitch. It's great to read about so many of Baz's mates making the journey - I'm sure the gesture will be highly appreciated.

Managed to get enough done in work today to be able to go tomorrow. Driving up with Llandre and a few others.

The mileage he put in week in week out for the Scarlets, I just feel that this is something small that I can do to appreciate that.

Our thoughts will be with you all this afternoon at Baz's service. So sad at not being able to make it.

So many people looking back and saying their life was enriched by having met him. Memories live on.

Apologies for using Baz's log in but I needed to just say a HUGE Thank you to all you lovely Scarlet supporters who attended Baz's funeral today. You made his day special myself and his family are truly grateful for your contributions . Special thanks to Solihull scarlet and highbury scarlet for their touching words. Thanks also to you all for your superb singing of Sospan Fach during the service. You are all truly wonderous. I shall return with the support of Solihull scarlet to the Parc soon. Bless you all xx

Good effort by all those who went. I`ve raised a glass to the big guy tonight when I got in from work.
I would say RIP, but no doubt Grav will seek you out quick enough to join him, Hefin and Bernard Thomas down at the Scarlets clubhouse in the sky.

A really good representation of friends from the Scarlet's end attended the funeral and I know many more would have been there, if they could have. The tributes given by Colin and Ron were heartfelt, humorous and gave a little insight to the character of the friend, that we all shall miss. I will always remember Baz standing by the window in the South concourse bar, ready for the half time post mortem. The funeral was a great send off, where we gave him one last blast of Sosban Fach which was sung well. To have carried Baz was a huge honour for myself and I really hope he is looking down us all with a huge smile. Val will miss him more than any of us and I know that yesterday ment everything to her, and the family. Baz has departed from this life, but he will not be forgotten at the Parc. I have lovely memories of some happy times and will remember those for many years to come. Sleep well Baz Nos Da.
