Funeral arrangements confirmed for Kevin Bird

16 March 2023

The club can now confirm funeral arrangements for one of its greatest ever players, Kevin Bird.

The legendary Stags’ defender passed away recently at the age of 70.

Kevin’s funeral will take place at Mansfield Crematorium at 11.15am on Friday 17 March.

The funeral cortege will pass One Call Stadium – via the entrance to the Kevin Bird Suite - at 10.30am on Friday 17 March before proceeding to Mansfield Crematorium.

Following discussions with Kevin’s family, the club invites supporters to pay their respects to Kevin at the aforementioned date outside the Ian Greaves Stand at One Call Stadium.

The funeral cortege will then proceed to Mansfield Crematorium for 11.15am.

Due to limited space available, please note that the family have confirmed a guest list for those who can enter the chapel at Mansfield Crematorium.

However, provisions will be made where the service can also be heard outside of the chapel.

Those who wish to pay their respects are encouraged to arrive at either of the abovementioned venues in good time.
