The funeral of Harry Beevers, co-founder of the Five Towns Quiz League in 1991, took place today Thursday 11 February 2016, at the Trinity Methodist Church in Castleford and Pontefract Crematorium. 
 
The service was led by the minister at Trinity, Andrew Checkly and he paid tribute to Harry with several anecdotes from his time knowing Harry and his family.  This was followed by an address from Harry's younger brother Cliff and his wife, who although not Harry's twin (a few years younger), still bears remarkable resemblance to Harry Beevers and then Simon Curtis, Secretary of the Five Towns Quiz League since its foundation in 1991 was called up to give a similar tribute to Harry with his memories of Harry and how they came to found the Five Towns Quiz League together in 1991.  The text of Simon's eulogy can be found by clicking the link below.
 
The Committee of the Five Towns Quiz League brought a wreath to the funeral, which can be seen on the photographs herein and it was also nice to see a good turnout of quiz people from both the FTQL and Harry's Wakefield quiz league friends from over the years.
