Crossed the Bar

Sitrep 1, photographs.

It is with much sadness that I report that Second Officer (E) RFA(Retd) Nicholas (Nick) Patrick Cronin crossed the bar on Saturday 23rd November 2019 aged 38. Nick was not a member of our Association but was part of the RFA family.

Nick’s funeral will be held at Barham Crematorium (HERE for their webstite and HERE for a map) on Friday 10th January 2020 at 14:00.

Old friends and shipmates will be made must welcome to the service.

Family flowers only please but donations in lieu, and if desired, should be made to Help the Heroes. (HERE for their website)

The arrangements for the funeral are being made by A. Welsh Funeral, Directors, at their Herne Bay Office (HERE for their website and HERE for a map).

I have a few more details to discuss with the family and will sitrep this page accordingly.

On behalf of the RFA Association I offer our sincere condolences to his mother Christine and all his family

If you have any remembrances of Nick 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”. I am also looking for photographs of Nick for this piece and the RFA Association Gallery and Archive, if you have one please email it to me.

My thanks to Nick’s brother for the photographs.
