Memorial service for Athol Hill

A MEMORIAL service for Athol Hill will take place at Henley town hall on Thursday.

His father, veteran singer Vince Hill, said friends and well-wishers would be welcome to attend the service, which will begin at 1.30pm.

It will be followed by a private family funeral at Reading Crematorium.

Mr Hill jnr, 42, was found dead at the home of his former partner on Tuesday last week.

Less than 48 hours earlier, he had been involved in a car crash on the B481 at Highmoor as he drove from his home near Cookley Green to his parents’ home in Shiplake.

Mr Hill said his son had bumped his head at a function the previous week, which left him with blurred vision, and he feared this could have caused his death.

An inquest has been opened and adjourned.
