Bernard 'Bernie' Bramwell

1932 - 19th September 2002


On behalf of the Essex County Darts Organisation, I would like to express sincere condolences to Anne Bramwell and her family on the loss of Bernie.
He was the President of the County and a great friend to all those who knew him.
     Together with one or two others, he was the founder of the Super League and County Darts within Essex  way back in 1973.    He always made certain the County had a sound base and indeed remained interested in its running right up to the present day.   We have a great deal to be thankful to him for - especially his encouragement and guidance throughout the years.


As a member of the board of Directors of the B.D.O he was a well respected man -  he was also well known for his very high principles (as many a person found out to their cost).   He was fair and would always see two sides of a story.

On a personal note, it was Bernie who first persuaded me to join the County Executive Committee and, over the years, I have enjoyed many a weekend in his company.   He knew how to enjoy himself, was a good sport and liked his tipple of barley wine.    Essex has lost a long time friend, a marvellous ambassador for darts and a good President.    Rest in peace Bernie.
