One of the great things about our sport and gig rowing is its strong sense of community. People involved around Gig Rowing are connected not just through our shared love of the boats and racing, but also through a shared set of values.
We set up this page as a place to remember rowers of the past. As well as listing the death it’s also a chance for rowers to add a comment, a way for them to pay their respects when often they don’t know the rower well enough to attend the funeral.
So if you would like us to list a death on GigRower then please email email@example.com with the name of the rower, their age, date of their passing, at least one photo, as well as summary of their life. We will then post it on the website, share it on facebook and open it for comments where rowers can pay their respects or add a short story or memory. All comments are moderated by the GigRower team so nothing rude, disrespectful or contentious will be posted. You must have permission from the direct family before you contact us and we will want to check this before we publish so please provide details.
