Andy Holmes – Book of Condolence and Memorial

The family of ex-international and Olympic rower Andy Holmes, MBE, who died on Sunday 24th October, has asked British Rowing to pass on the following information to his many friends in the rowng world.

There will a small private funeral for Andy which will be held within the next two weeks and will be for family members only.  A Memorial gathering to celebrate his life and his achievements is being planned for a date and venue to be announced later, probably towards the end of November.

Peter Holmes says it would be very helpful if all those who would like to attend the Memorial could email him at so that he has some idea of the numbers involved.

Furnivall Sculling Club have opened a Book of Condolences for tributes to Andy, their Director of Rowing.  The book will be available at the Club during the weekends and during the week will be held at British Rowing’s Head Office.
