"SENT ON BEHALF OF AREA MANAGER JOHN DICKIE
The funeral arrangements for our colleague Alan are as follows:
Date: Friday, 25th April
Location: MORTONHALL CREMATORIUM (MAIN CHAPEL), EDINBURGH
In line with the family's wishes, SFRS will provide an honour guard for Alan at the crematorium, as well as a fire appliance from Crewe Toll Fire Station (511) to follow the funeral cortege from Alan's house to Mortonhall.
To ensure we can provide a fitting honour guard for Alan could I ask that ALL off-duty uniformed personnel are at Mortonhall Crematorium no later than 10.30am. This is to allow for the forming up of the honour guard. It would be really appreciated if as many as possible off-duty personnel would attend in uniform as highlighted below to form the honour guard.
The family will be attending the Gorgie Suite, Tynecastle Stadium for family, friends and colleagues to come together. An announcement will be made during the ceremony at Mortonhall with regards to this. I am informing all colleagues of the venue to allow those attending to plan travel arrangements, change of clothes etc."
