In memory of our friend and colleague Keith Shawcross

14th January 2020

It is with great sadness that we share with you the news that Keith passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, on 6th January 2020. He had been unwell for some time and details of a service of thanksgiving, celebrating Keith’s life, are below.

Keith was a well-known and much-loved figure in Ross-on-Wye and the surrounding area, and after he merged his practice with Harrison Clark Rickerbys over eight years ago, he was a valued partner, colleague and friend to many people in the firm. We were delighted last year to be able to celebrate his half-century as a practising solicitor and notary with him.

His practice was, for many years, the leading law firm in South Herefordshire and Keith was one of its most renowned lawyers – he will be much missed.

Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.

A service of thanksgiving will be held on Tuesday 28th January at 12.00 noon at St Mary’s Church, Ross-on-Wye (HR9 5BS).  The family’s wish is that flowers are not sent and, instead, those who wish to do so, make a donation to one of three charities; Prostate Cancer UK, The National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain and St Michael’s Hospice in Hereford.  The donations can be sent to William Bevan Funeral Directors who will deal with passing the donations onto the relevant organisation, in Keith’s memory.

As a mark of respect, the Wye Valley office will be closed on Tuesday 28th January. If you need to speak to a member of the Wye Valley office urgently please call 01905 612001
