Anthony Ingham R.I.P.

Posted on by Site Admin

Tony Ingham’s funeral took place on Friday 7th May. The funeral cortege was set to depart at 11.40am for the Requiem Mass at the Catholic Church of Our Lady and St. Thomas of Canterbury on Harrow-on-the-Hill. The opening Hymn was ‘Abide With Me’ and closed with ‘Jerusalem’.

He died on 21st April, aged 85 and we heard the sad news via the Official Website:-

‘It is with great sadness that Queens Park Rangers Football Club has learned of the passing of former player and Director, Tony Ingham. Tony, who made a record 555 appearances for the Club, died on Wednesday afternoon following a recent illness.’

I attended the Service at Breakspear Crematorium in Ruislip. On entering the Chapel, the first thing I noticed was the framed picture of Tony Ingham in the Hoops, resting on top of the coffin. At the end of the Service, we sat down and listened to the chosen piece of music, Nat King Cole’s wonderful and very poignant, ‘Unforgettable’. Amongst the attendees were Frank Sibley, Terry Springett, Andy Evans, Sheila Marson, Dave Robinson, Peter Ellis and Brian Rowe.

God Bless Tony – A QPR Legend Who Will Never Be Forgotten.

Rest in Peace

Steve Russell

    The man did so much good for the club both on and off the pitch. Everyone that met him came away with such good memories and feelings both for him and the club.
