Fergus King MBE – Funeral arrangements

The funeral of Fergus King MBE will take place on Wednesday 12th August 2020. Due to government restrictions – the interment will be private, and attendees at the invitation of the family.
The funeral cortège will travel from his home in Willington to Durham City RFC, and will arrive there at 10:30am. It is the wish of the family that the road to the Rugby club (Green Lane) is lined with friends wearing their club ties and blazers if possible. Friends should walk behind the car as it makes its way to the club stops at the pitch-side at hollow drift. There will be two songs, a poem, and Fergus will then leave to a minute of applause.
While the interment is private, friends are welcome to meet at Durham City Rugby Club from 12pm and will be joined by the family.
At the appropriate time in the future, it is the intention of the family to support a series of events, dedicated to Fergus.
Family flowers only – donations in lieu will be made to various Rugby charities via:
