Crossed the Bar

It is with so much sadness that I report that Petty Officer (Deck) Barry Andrew Clemance  RFA (Retd)  known as “Clem” Crossed the Bar on 26 May 2021 aged 56. Clem was not a member of our Association but was, of course, a member of our RFA family. He was active in the RFA from 1989 until 2018 when he retired on medical grounds.


His funeral will take place at Lancaster and Morecambe Crematorium (HERE for the website and HERE for a map)at 11:30 on Wednesday 16 June 2016 and will be subject to Covid restrictions regarding the number of attendees. The arrangements are being made by J N Wilson Funeral Directors (HERE for the website and HERE for a map)

Family flowers only but donations in lieu and if desired, should be made, in Clem’s name, to St John’s Hospice, Lancaster (HERE for thei website and HERE for a map)

On behalf of the RFA Association I offer sincere condolences to his wife Karen and his sons Leon and Archie.

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