Crossed the Bar

It is with so much sadness I report that Captain(E) Neville Springer RFA(Retd) Crossed the Bar on Tuesday 12 March 2019 aged 70, after a short battle with cancer Neville was not a member of our Association but was, of course, part of our RFA Family.

Neville’s funeral will take place on Tuesday 26 March at 13:45 at Test Valley Crematorium, Ridge Lane, Romsey, SO 51 6AB. (HERE for their website and HERE for a map). The arrangements are being made by A H Cheater Ltd,122 The Hundred, Romsey, SO51 8BY. (HERE for their website and HERE for a map).

Family flowers only but donations in Neville’s name and co-ordinated by the Funeral Directors should, if desired, be made via the Funeral Directors to the Dogs Trust. (HERE for their website and HERE for a map)

Old shipmates and colleagues will be very welcome and those attending the service will be invited to join the family for refreshments afterwards.

On behalf of the RFA Association I offer our sincere condolences to his wife Beryl,  and all his family.

If you have any remembrances of Neville please email it to me at and I will post them on this page. I am also looking for photographs of Mike for this piece and the RFA Association Gallery and Archive, if you have one please email it to me.
