Crossed the Bar

Sitrep 1 Funeral Arrangements

It is with much sadness that I report that Captain Ken Maxwell RFA(Retd)  crossed the bar on Thursday 21st November 2019 aged 86.

Sitrep1. Ken’s funeral will be held at 10.20am at Barnstaple crematorium (HERE for their website and HERE for a map) on Monday 9th December. Old colleagues and shipmates are most welcome to attend and to join the family afterwards for refreshment.

The arrangements are being made by Baddick & Dymond, Funeral Directors (HERE for their website and HERE for a map).

Family flowers only but donations, in lieu, and of desired should be made to the RFA Association to support their benevolent work.

On behalf of the RFA Association I offer our sincere condolences to his wife Rosemary, who predeceased him, children Caroline, Judith, Vanessa, Michelle and 16 Grandchildren

If you have any remembrances of Ken please email it to me at and I will post them on this page. Alternatively you can post to our facebook page “RFA Crosed the Bar”. I am also looking for photographs of Ken for this piece and the RFA Association Gallery and Archive, if you have one please email it to me.
