It must be every English Rugby Union fan’s dream to have their ashes scattered at Twickenham. They do have a policy and due to the demand it is pretty restrictive, however I for one was touched and impressed at what they had decided.
This is what they said:
The RFU Council has a policy for scattering ashes as we get many requests from families of rugby loving supporters and ex-players and it would be impossible to accede to them all. Requests can only be granted from families of Past Presidents of the Union and from former England Internationals who have played at Twickenham. The President also has the discretion in the case of a serving member of the HM Forces killed in action who had played rugby football for the Royal Navy, Army or Royal Air Force.
In can almost hear ‘Swing Low Sweet Chariot’ ringing in my ears…
