The funeral details of Tom Chandley owner, Eric Dyson, have been announced, after he sadly died earlier this month.

The funeral service will take place at Saint Stephen’s Parish Church, Huddersfield, next Friday, and there will be a family committal at Huddersfield Crematorium.

Dyson passed away suddenly on Tuesday 21 April, just a day after he had liaised with customers at the NEC in Birmingham, where the company was exhibiting its equipment.

His son, Martin Dyson, said: “He died peacefully during the night at our favourite hotel in Redditch.

“Everyone is very welcome to join us after the funeral at Cedar Court Hotel, Huddersfield.

“Family flowers only please, donations in lieu, to be made to one of his favourite charities, Heart Research UK.”
