Ossie's Ashes

Recommended Posts

DP89   

It was announced in the programme yesterday that Peter Osgoods ashes will be laid at Stamford Bridge. A memorial service will take place at the Bridge which fans may attend. Should be an emotional day, anyone thinking of going?

They should do it before the match when we get presented with the prem. trophy would be very touching.

I'm sure that would go down well with most fans. Guess its down to his family to decide, as they may well want a more private "time" to scatter the ashes.

It says in the programme, on page 17:

"His ashes will be laid in a permanent place at Stamford Bridge".

No mention of them being scattered.

I took this to mean that the urn would be kept somewhere in the ground.

As Michael says, the pitch is dug up twice a year, and therefore hardly a permanent resting place.

Thought it was a really nice touch that Ian Hutchinson's widow was at the match on Saturday. What a fantastic pairing these two were on the pitch - if slightly less succesfull when it came to running a pub.
