ACKROYD ROGER JOHN After a long struggle with ill health, Roger aged 81 years, passed away peacefully in Bridlington on Sunday 20th January. Roger had a full life as a successful caterer, meeting dignitaries and celebrities of the day, with his wife and joint host, Nona, at the hugely popular Grange Farm Restaurant in Toton, Nottingham, well into the late 1970's. A quote from Egon Ronay's Guide 1963 reads, "The example of the Grange Farm should be held up to hundreds of other caterers in the Midlands. It has almost everything that customers could want". The Funeral Service will be held at East Riding Crematorium, Octon Cross Road, Driffield, YO25 3BL at 12.30pm on Friday 8th February, with a light buffet lunch following the service at the crematorium's function suite. All welcome. Floral arrangements to Co-op Bridlington Funeralcare, 59 St John Street, YO16 7NN by 11am please.
