Friday 4th Decembersaw us say Goodbye to Alan 'Ed' Shinton who Passed Away on 19th November after a long illness fought with great courage and dignity.

The colourful celebration of Alan's life took place at Wyre Forest Crematorium and was led by Stuart Crompton.

The cortege, a silver Jaguar Hearse & Limousine, decorated in green, red & gold ribbons and bows truly reflected this wonderful mans colourful life.

Alan's coffin was draped in the Army Dog Unit (NI) flag and his beret & medals were on the coffin throughout the ceremony.

Our thoughts are with Cath and all the family as they try to come to terms with their loss.

Although we did not know Alan personally, we are sure that he would of been so proud of you all and the send off you gave him.

With Cath's kind permission, we are sharing some of the photographs in memory of this very special man.

Rest In Peace Alan
