In memoriam, Eileen and Bill Gough

Susan Arrowsmith has been in touch and asked me to share with you all the sad news that her parents Eileen Gough (nee Bradshaw) and Bill Gough recently passed away within days of each other.

Formerly Brownhills residents before moving to Walsall Wood and High Heath, the couple  were well known and respected locally.

Obviously in these difficult times the funeral service is limited in attendance, but Susan would like folk to know when her parents will be taking their final journey.

Susan wrote:

These are strange times when news does not circulate the way you might expect.

Eileen Gough (nee Bradshaw)  Bill Gough (my darling dad) was a Brownhills lad born and bred, a long serving member of WW Boys Brigade. Both lived on the Chester Road, Shire Oak until married before moving to the Wood then into High Heath.

If you think there might be people in your sphere who knew them then please do pass this news on.

Their double funeral is Friday 24th April 2020 up at Fradley and will passing through Walsall Wood, Clayhanger, Brownhills and Shire Oak.

Such a happy couple. Eileen and Bill, rest in peace. Image kindly supplied by Susan Arrowsmith.

The funeral is limited to 10 people but I would like for as many people as possible to know they are making one last journey at 9am. Thank you.

My sincerest condolences and sympathies to Susan and all of the Gough family and their friends, and my gratitude goes out to Susan for letting us know.
