Roy Nicholls passed away, at the age of 55 following a short battle with cancer, on Wednesday afternoon, 17th October 2012. Roy spent many years as a working member in various departments around the Railway, mainly at Sheffield Park. He was probably best known as a guard and shunter, although he was also to be seen around the loco yard and on the station; he would help where help was required. He had to retire from the Railway due to unrelated ill health a number of years ago and moved to Wales with his wife, Sylvia. He leaves his wife, his mother, Sybil, and a brother.
The Funeral was held on Monday 29th October at the Forest of Dean Crematorium (in Cinderford) and afterwards in Lea Village Hall for refreshments. This was in his grand children's half term and they were thus able to attend. It was aimed to be very much a laid back event without formality; Roy asked that it should be a simple affair.
