Rams Remember, a service launched by Derby County five years ago, gives supporters the chance to remember and celebrate the lives of friends, family and fellow supporters who have sadly passed away over the past couple of years.
As part of the club’s on-going relationship with preferred partner Wathall’s, the club will stage two ‘Rams Remember’ fixtures at Pride Park Stadium in the 2021/22 season.
The first will take place on Monday 27th December 2021 when the Rams host West Bromwich Albion (3pm kick-off), while the second will be held on the final day of the season against Cardiff City on Saturday 7th May (12:30pm kick-off).
The club would like to offer supporters the opportunity to submit the details of their loved ones who are no longer with us by completing the below submission form.
The names of loved ones who have sadly passed away will appear across the LED pitchside boards and during the RamsTV production ahead of kick-off at their selected fixture.
Supporters should note that there is a limited capacity for names per fixture.
Wathall’s, which is Derby’s longest established independent funeral directors, works in partnership with DCFC to enable Rams fans to have a unique and personal send-off.
Wathall’s, which has branches in Derby city centre, Allestree, Alvaston, Ashbourne Borrowash and Burton-on-Trent, give families special access to Pride Park Stadium following the funeral of their loved one.
Options include the chance to place a commemorative brick and ashes around the perimeter of Pride Park Stadium; using the club logo and colours for flower arrangements and coffins; inclusion in the remembrance book at the stadium and ashes interment gatherings.
These are available either as part of a funeral pre-payment plan for someone who is in the process of planning their own funeral or to the bereaved’s family after their death.
Managing Director Helen Wathall MBE is a lifelong Rams fan and the fifth generation of her family to run the funeral directors which has been serving local communities since 1858.
