Crossed the Bar

I have received, a now confirmed report, that SG1A Bernard Gray, crossed the bar on Friday 1st March 2019 aged 60, He had recently left RFA Tiderace. Bernard was not a member of our Association but he was part of the RFA family.

His funeral will conducted by a Civil Celebrant and will take place at John Duckworth, Funeral Directors, Memorial Chapel (HERE for their website and HERE for a map) followed by interment at Jarrow Cemetery (HERE for their website and HERE for a map)

Very many thanks to Sophie, Bernards daughter, for this photograph.

I have no more details at the moment but will sitrep this page as and when they become available.

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

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