Sitrep 1, Funeral arrangemts and photograph.

It is with much sadness that  I report that former Captain Peter Trevarthen Taylor RFA(Retd)  (not a member but part of our RFA family) crossed the bar on  Thursday 9th December aged 100.His funeral will be held at the Weymouth Crematorium (HERE for their website and HERE for a map) on Wednesday 5 January at 14:30  with the arrangements being made by Rose Funeral Services, Weymouth (HERE for their website and HERE for a map) . As anymore details become available I will post them to this page.

Family flowers only but donations in Peter’s name, and if desired, should be made to the RNLI and or the RFA Association via our Paypal account (

On behalf of the RFA Association I offer our sincere condolences to his two children, David and Suzanne and seven grandchildren. His wife Estelle who predeceased him. Thanks also to his grandson, Michael Flynn who made the report to me.

If you have any remembrances of Peter please email it to me at and I will post them on this page. Alternatively you can post to our facebook page “RFA Crossed the Bar”.
