    William (Bill) England

    It is with great regret that I advise that Bill England died suddenly on Tuesday 31st July after a short illness. Bill was aged 77.

    Bill was Secretary of The National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain for 25 years. He commenced his administrative work in the early 1970s, which he carried out with great professionalism until he retired from the position in 1997.

    Bill England is one of the very finest servants in The National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain’s 55 year history. He will be greatly and sadly missed.

    I remember the many courses on the NYBB with Mr England and he was always approachable and helpful. He was indeed a great servant to that band and indeed for those he helped to enjoy the banding experience so that they carried on to play, like myself and many of my fellow players. He will definitely be missed.
