Philip, Pippa & Helen Williams have asked that the above details of the venue, date and time of the Memorial Service for former OURFC player and three-time Oxford Blue, Ian Williams, be made public.  All are welcome to attend.  The 27 year old professional player tragically died whilst training with Doncaster Knights on 20th February this year.  A private funeral service has already taken place.

The Memorial Service will be held in the Chapel at Keble College, and “post-match” refreshments will also be catered for at Keble.  We are sure this will be a well-attended service and the family are looking forward to welcoming as many of you as can make it.

For your information, there is no parking available at Keble, and parking in Oxford is notoriously difficult.  OURFC have kindly offered the use of their ground at Iffley Road (Jackdaw Lane) on a “first come, first served” basis.  The city of Oxford also offers park & ride schemes, details of which can be found online.  There are 6 locations from which you can choose.  Keble College have also offered discounted accommodation, again on a “first come, first served” basis.  For further details and to book, please visit www.keble.ox.ac.uk/bed-breakfast and use the promotion code: MEMORIAL2018

You may also like to know that a foundation is being set up to create a lasting legacy that recognises the impact Ian had on those who knew him.  Please visit the JustGiving page via the link below for details of how to donate.


For any queries or further information, please contact Patrick Ryan & Daughter on 020 8567 1664 or email patrick-ryan@virgin.net
