Rams Remember: Second 2021/22 Fixture Confirmed
Rams Remember, launched by Derby County a number of 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 Rams’ ongoing relationship with preferred partner Wathall’s, the club confirmed earlier in the season that it would stage two ‘Rams Remember’ fixtures at Pride Park Stadium in the 2021/22 season.
The first took place on Monday 27th December 2021 when the Rams hosted West Bromwich Albion and ran out 1-0 winners over the festive period.
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 submission form that can be found on the DCFC website https://www.dcfc.co.uk/page/ramsremember
The names of loved ones who have sadly passed away will appear across various assets 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 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.
She said: “As Derby’s longest established funeral directors, we are proud to partner with DCFC and particularly to support the Rams Remember fixtures.
“This is an opportunity for fans to nominate and celebrate their loved ones who have sadly passed away.”
Working in Partnership
Wathall’s, which is Derby’s longest established independent funeral director, 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.
