Crossed the Bar

Sitrep 1. Funeral Arrangements

It is with so much sadness I report that Third Officer(E) Sebastian (Seb) Andrew Cornish Crossed the Bar on Friday the 17th February aged just 32. Seb left the RFA some years ago and was not a member of the RFA Association but he was RFA.

Seb’s funeral will be held at 13:45 on Friday 7th April 2017 at Haycombe Crematorium Bath (HERE for their website and HERE for a Map), Seb’s family will be delighted to welcome old shipmates and colleagues and invite them to join them for refreshments afterwards.

Family flowers only but donations, if desired, should be made in Seb’s name to Medecin Sans Frontiers, Seb’s favourite charity (HERE for their website).

The arrangements for Seb’s funeral are being made by Co-op Funeralcare Bath (HERE for their website).


On behalf of the RFA Association I offer our sincere condolences to Mum and Dad, Wendy and Andrew and Chris and Nick his brothers.
