Death of a retired Police Officer: DC 1144 Laurie Bawden

It is with regret that we have to inform you of the death of a retired Police Officer: DC 1144 Laurie Bawden, who died peacefully on 11th July, 2022. 

Laurie joined the police force in County Durham in 1970 as a police cadet. He served at South Stanley and Stanhope in Weardale, before joining CID in Durham City. He left the police force in 1985. After the police force he relocated to the south, starting a successful guarding organisation, Sirius Security Services Ltd in the city of London. He retired in 2003.

He is survived by 2 children, Mark and Sara. 

Laurie requested a pure cremation and there will be a memorial to remember him at 11:00 on 28th September, 2022, at St Cuthberts Church, Stokesley Road, Marton, Middlesbrough, TS7 8JU.

The family request no flowers but donations in memory of Laurie to the charity Dementia Adventure,

Afterwards all are invited to join us in the church hall for refreshments - 1pm, followed by a more relaxed gathering in the Rudds Arms, Marton Road, 

To assist with catering you are asked to notify of your intentions to attend.

Our thoughts are with all the family at this time.
