John Philip Brookes

We are very sorry to report that John Philip Brookes, a Bencher of the society since 1987, died on 4 February 2023.

He was 96 years old.

There will be a private family cremation and then memorial service at his rugby clubhouse: Streatham-Croydon Rugby Football Club in a few week’s time.

John Brookes’s memorial service will be at 11am on Friday 3rd March at his beloved rugby club;


Streatham-Croydon Rugby Football Club

159 Brigstock Rd,

John did not want a fuss, so this will be a very simple gathering of his alumni, friends, and rugby club members sharing memories and stories, over morning tea.
