I have received an email re John Baxter (ex Benburb, Hibs, Falkirk, Clydebank and Scotland player), who passed away in December 2014.
The gentleman was looking for details of his funeral, unfortunately I didn’t have any details regarding him in our membership.
He wrote ” I see from the Scotsman that John Baxter has died. I remember playing against him in the youth churches league when I played for Cowlairs Parish against a very good team from Gordon Parish. I do not know if he was a member of the BB or present church but I was wondering if you knew any details of his funeral. I also followed him in his football career as I was a Hibernian supporter and he played for Hibs after being with Benburb.
Does anyone remember John as being a 214 boy?
(I believe he was 78 when he passed away last month. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Baxter_(footballer)
( Turns out John Baxter was never in the 214 but another company though he did play for Gordon Park Youth team in the churches league. Was also a member of Cowlairs Golf club. – The gent who enquired did manage to get to the funeral where a BB hymn was played.)
