Peter Carlill

It is with great sadness that we announce that Peter Carlill passed away on the 6th January at Trinity Hospice, Clapham Common. He was 66 years old on that day.

Peter was an active orienteer for most of his adult life in such diverse locations as Wales, London, one of the Baltic states and latterly in Norfolk. He was also a keen bird watcher and butterfly enthusiast.

Following tests in the summer Peter was diagnosed with one of the worst forms of leukaemia. The chemo in late August and November were not successful, and in December, he opted for palliative care. The leukaemia was so quick and brutal, that he never had the chance to return home to sort out his papers and write emails.

The funeral service will take place on Wednesday the 7th February at Putney Vale Crematorium, East chapel, adjacent to Wimbledon Common, where he did so many training runs and some good bird watching.

Afterwards at the Nightingale Pub, on Nightingale Lane between Clapham Common and Wandsworth Common. As Peter had been working in Myanmar these last few years, and was living on the Norfolk coast rather than at home in Balham, the Service will also be streamed.

Our thoughts are with his wife, Christine.
