There is a mass grave in Mitcham cemetery, also Ewan MacColl singer songwriter, he wrote Dirty Old Town, Rod Stewart does a good version on youtube, he wrote The Young Birds, about the lads in the crash, his son went to Lanfranc and was friends with some of the lads

Slightly OT, but if you're every around Croydon cemetery there is a dedicated memorial to the boys and 2 teachers that died.

That can never be OT Becky.
If I'm in the area I will pay my respects.
Thank you.

I donít get what draws these foreign supporters groups who havenít that connection to a club. They meet up in pubs at strange hours to watch the games, okay it must be a good social thing, but why palace?


Back in the nineties I was in the Wetherspoons opposite Thornton Heath station before an evening game and struck up conversation with a guy from Denmark. He explained that watching Premiership football was his passion and that he'd settled on Palace because it was the only conveniently located club where he could get (and afford) a season ticket. (Wouldn't Newcastle be easier?)

We have a supporters club in Norway, in the early sixties a plane crash caused the death of students from Lanfranc school in Croydon, there has been a connection ever since, i remember the crash, some of the lads who died lived close to me

Croydon crem.has a memorial for this to the left of the main drive , as you approach the crematorium.
Very moving.

 


Kids,tired of being bothered by your pesky parents?
Then leave home, get a job & pay your own bills, while you still know everything.

I would think as well as directly around selhurst the majority of our supporters will come from the south side as it's always been the biggest club in the vicinity

no family ties to the palace location and my dad hated football,just simply that a teacher at my secondary school in cranbrook kent, He was a palace fan born in croydon and took me and a mate up to selhurst for games. good chap actually. that was in 1976, I was 15 then. that was in simpler times as it wouldnt be allowed now etc. been going ever since and ST in the arfur.
