The funeral of Mike Tremlett, the former Moseley scrum-half and long-serving North Midlands referee, will take place at Redditch Crematorium on March 29 at 11.45am.
Tremlett passed away last week after a brave battle against cancer.
The former Moseley Grammar School pupil followed a distinguished playing career by becoming a well-respected referee and a member of the North Midlands Society of Rugby Football Referees for more than 50 years.
He also represented the NMSRFR on the North Midlands Disciplinary Committee for 37 years before he retired last summer.
Dai Scard, North Midland Chairman of Discipline, and Peter Jordan, North Midlands Disciplinary Secretary, paid a joint tribute to a man they worked closely with for many years.
“Mike Tremlett was a proud family man, a man of integrity and a rugby man through and through. It has been our privilege to serve on Disciplinary with Mike all this century. He was a key member of our team as a panel member, as our record keeper and as our link with the North Midlands Referees Society. Mike’s contribution to Rugby and to Discipline in the county was outstanding,” they said.
