His family have asked that, in lieu of flowers, members of the public who wish to honour Bill’s memory do so by making a donation to the Brain Tumour Research charity. Bill’s son was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2009 and Bill subsequently became a patron of the charity. Donations can be made on a specially set up Justgiving page.
The Tarmey family released this statement: “Bill’s family are very grateful for the messages of condolence, comfort and support they are receiving from Bill’s friends, colleagues and members of the public at this very sad time.”
