    Since this is the Death List site, I would like to see a ban on all the twee euphemisms like "passed".  Dead, died, death. We are grown ups and should be afraid of these words.  I don't mind the more jocular ones once in a while, eg fell off the perch, kicked the bucket etc. The ones that you don't imagine being said in a hushed tone. Popped his clogs? Snuffed it?

    Will 2017 Be a Bigger Year In Deaths Than 2016?

    Why, oh why no Helmut Kohl?? Would and should have been celebrating today.....equalling the record with a double day.

    Queen Elizabeth II

    I can't see any evidence in that article at all that she is "still ill". The DM has nothing new at all, except that they have tried to get the Palace to say whether HM is going to turn up for church tomorrow. And the Palace has basically told them that the Queen is not the DM's bitch, so they will have to wait and see. Telegraph saying she won't attend this morning. That's quite a "cold" she's got.

    24. Nobby Stiles

    Peters was still fit enough to attend the Celebration Dinner, whereas our Nobby - my nap of 2017 - was nowhere to be seen. I thought Peters was pulled out of all the 50th anniversairy events as were Stiles Wilson Greaves and Bonetti? Oops...I stand corrected. Peters attended the gala final WHU match at Upton Park a few weeks earlier. Bonetti is a surprise...much younger than the others and never headed the ball.

    Queen Elizabeth II

    What people forget when then say about Queen Liz and their "look at her mother....she lived until she was 102, you know" ...well yeah, but her Dad kicked the bucket when only 56!!

    Irate Visitors Rage Here, If You Must.

    We're overdue a state funeral anyway, the last proper one was coming on 52 years ago. And the last tendy one was 2013. I would think 1997 (Diana) and 2002 (the Queen Mum) counted for something. They were ceremonial not state (as was Thatcher's I think). Churchill's in '65 was the last state funeral. Correct. They do count for something hence referring to them as tendy ones. So when Phillip finally kicks the bucket all he gets is a ceremonial funeral. I'm curious ... if Prince Charles were to die before QEII does he get a tendy state funeral or a tendy ceremonial one? Phil will be ceremonial. Charles would be lucky to get a black bag collection from Westminster Council. We got short changed with Di & Queen Mum's funerals.....both held on a Saturday
