Martyn Cleasby Death – Obituary, Funeral, Cause Of Death

It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of a much-loved former member of staff and devoted Old Worksopian, Martyn Cleasby, at the age of 82. Martyn was a loyal member of staff from 1973 – 1997 and has remained an active part of the OW community ever since.
Martyn was originally appointed to teach French primarily, but also German. Years later he was given special responsibility for French under the then Head of Modern Languages, Colin Paton. He also went on to become a House Tutor in Talbot.
Like all the masters, Martyn was expected to be active in sports coaching, eventually taking on the role of sprint coach and the starter for all athletic track events and the Dorm Run.
He was appointed PR Officer under the Headship of Hugh Monroe, which involved liaising with local and national media, organising School/House photographs and organising the College’s presence at public school exhibitions.
Both Martyn’s sons, Morgan (Pelham 81 – 86) and Patrick (Pelham 79 – 84) were both students at the school and his wife Gabrielle, was also a former teacher of singing (Vocal Studies) at the college.
Details of Martyn’s funeral are listed below:
Thursday 12th August – 3.30pm
Sherwood Forest Crematorium, Newark Road, New Ollerton, NG22 0DY
