Final Tributes to Fisherman's Friend
7:00am 22nd February 2013
Family and friends of Fisherman's Friend Trevor Grills are gathering to say goodbye.
A private funeral is being held for the sea shanty singer in Port Isaac.
The fifty-four year old died after a metal door fell on him as he set up for a gig in Guildford.
He was left with serious head injuries and lost his fight for life in hospital two days later.
Tour manager Paul McMullen from Cheshire also died after suffering serious leg injuries at the scene.
Singer Alan Barnes from Falmouth knows the group. He said: "They just love to sing and are always taking the mick out of either other and anybody around them. They've got their own style, their way of singing things, which everyone just enjoys.
"I think everyone in Cornwall feels they're friends with them. They generate that sort of feeling around them, which is quite wonderful.
"Their humour and the fun around them and the love of what they do - I'm convinced they just love getting up and singing."
Trevor's family have asked for today's funeral to be a private affair.
The Fisherman's Friends website has been turned into a memorial page for the two men.
The group is asking for charity donations in memory of the men. The chosen charities are The Brandon Trust for Trevor. For Paul they are Save The Children and the NSPCC.
Full details of how to make donations are available here.7:00am 22nd February 2013
