Messages of condolence

To Karen, Alison, Moo, Paul and families - We are so sorry. Martin was a lovely and talented man and lost far too soon.

Mr David and Emma Bassett

Such a lovely lovely man. I'm so glad to have benefited from knowing Martin both professionally and personally. Even when trying to teach me to steer a narrow boat his patience never wavered! Will be missed muchly.

Mr Tim Matthews

Working with Martin in CTA was a real pleasure. Such a kind, warm guy who was so proud of his kids. All my love to his family.

Ms Jenny Laville

Martin, a remarkable man; one of the kindest most decent people we have ever met. A man of many talents with a wry sense of humour. He’s probably frowning at my punctuation at this very moment. Taken from us far too soon, but he will live on in our memories. “A time will come, and the wisest of us knows not how soon, When all distinctions, save those of goodness and virtue shall cease, And death, the grand leveller of all human greatness will reduce us to the same state.” Martin may not have been a believer but we are certain that there was a place waiting for him at the top table. Mike and Jan.


Martin was a wonderful colleague and manager, who worked closely with our team at the BBC. He was kind, calm and clever. We were lucky to know him. My deepest condolences to his family and friends. Pia x

Miss Pia Harold

There are so many happy tales to tell about Martin, his kindness, his ingenuity and his mischief making, Elspeth and I have lost a particularly lovely friend. I now regret, in the 42 years Martin and I had been such great pals, that I never got to beat him at tennis. It was often tantalisingly close but he would always pull something out of the bag when he was up against it. I guess it just goes to show, cancer is nothing like tennis.

Mr Mark Farrar

Dear Martin. I'm going to miss our musical collaborations and so sad we never got to do the Trout arrangement. I'll always have the one we did manage to remember you by. Adrian & Alison Wheeler

To Karen and Family. Martin to many of us was more than just someone we met on an evening to play football with. He was a friend and amd man of great integrity. He would where possible go above and beyond just being a player many of us met twice a week and would help guide and advise us on many subjects and topics. Personally he help me and my son many times and he will be great missed in my heart and I speak for many of his fellow club members feel the same. God bless you Martin... you are truly missed Jonathon sands on behalf of Cheshunt Walking football Club

Friend, neighbour, family. You will always be in our thoughts. Ben, Lauren, Thomas and Isobellle xxx
