William Walter Underwood
'Bill'
Born 17th February 1929 in Old Sheep Street
Departed 10th July 2021 in Sheep Street
Followed in his Father’s footsteps after National Service and became a local barber in the street he loves.
During Bill's 92 years he met many people through all walks of life and he experienced so much!
He married the love of his life Eileen and they had 3 boys together, 7 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren with 2 new additions on the way.
The funeral service will be on Tuesday 3rd August at 10am Semington crematorium. If you would like to pay your respects for Bills final journey he will be leaving Sheep Street around 9:15am. The family would like to welcome you afterwards for a toast to celebrate his life. This will be at the Wyvern club in Devizes from 11:30am.
Please do let us know you will be attending so that we can cater accordingly.
As there are so many wonderful memories we will not be able to mention them all in his eulogy so we would therefore welcome any memories/thoughts or sayings written down which we can include in a memory book. We can then share with you all at a later date if you leave us your contact details.
Thank you

My dad Mervyn Collett was friends with Bill and Dennis during the war and they all went to school together. My Dad was evacuated there from Sheffield. Every year we would visit Bill & Eileen until Dad passed in 1983. Please pass on our sincere condolences to Eileen & family.
