It is with deep regret we inform you of the death of Barbara Naylor on Sunday 30th June 2019. Barbara had an active role with Halifax Rugby League since the early 1960’s through until the transfer of the club from Thrum Hall to The Shay in 1998 together with the closure of Halifax Cricket Club, insisting on being instrumental in the closure to ensure ‘Things were done right for the future of the club’
The picture below is of Barbara in the former club house which she ran as club secretary with the Challenge Cup Trophy after the historic win by Halifax over St Helens in 1987.
The cremation service is on Monday 15th July 2019 at 10:30am at Park Wood Crematorium, Elland followed by light refreshments at Fixby Golf Club, Fixby, Huddersfield.
