    Andrew (Taff) Davies ex 3 Para

    It is with deep personal regret that I inform you of Andrew (Taff) Davies death on the 15th July 2019. Details are scarce at the moment, but apparently Andy / Taff Davies died suddenly, while out walking his dog. He was an ex member of 3 Para, and served in Northern Ireland and the Falklands War 1982. He an absolutely fantastic bloke, full of energy, a tremendous individual and a friend to all, many of you will know his brother Mark who served in 2 Para.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with Andy’s family at this time.

    As there is more information I will post here.

    Best regards Jimmy,
    "Sleep easy brother"

    Re: Andrew (Taff) Davies ex 3 Para

    Heads up for anyone in the Aberdare area:
    taken from his brother Mark's facebook page.

    Andrew (Taff) Davies funeral details:
    It will be on Monday 5th August at 1500 hrs.
    As most are all aware of the sad and sudden death of my brother.
    Sgt Taff Andrew Davies who served in 3 PARA, Pathfinders and Red Devils who suddenly passed away on the 15 July.
    Due to the legalities and red tape of repatriating Andrew home, it is now planned for Andrew's funeral to be on:
    Monday 5th August 2019.
    He will be cremated at:
    Llwydcoed Crematorium
    1 Ty Newydd
    Aberdare
    CF44 0DJ
    Time: 1500hrs
    Dress: Regimental ties, Berets and Medals

    After the service you are invited to join the family at:
    Penywaun Club Institute
    Gwadlys Street
    Penywaun
    CF44 9DE
    I will publish an update if we have to cancel or if there has to be a new date.
    The family have requested that flowers are from the family and any donations in lieu of flowers to be made to either:
    The Parachute Regimental Association.
    Help For Heroes.
    All donations to be sent to the undertakers who will consolidate and after a period of time will send to the respective charities.
    Richards Funeral Services Ltd
    J. James Richards Dip FD
    74 Harriet Street
    Trecynon
    Aberdare
    CF44 8PL
    Aberdare is a small town and obviously not many hotels. I have put on some that may suit people if they require accommodation:
    Ty Newydd Country Hotel 10-15 minutes from Crematorium
    Book online or telephone: 020 3564 5464
    Premiere Inn Aberdare: 15-20 minutes from crematorium. Telephone: 08715 278002
    There are other B&B's around the area and of course in Merthyr Tydfil which is 9 miles away.
