Farewell to 'our Elvis'
January 24, 2008
By Jean Trotter
FLORAL tributes in the shape of a three foot guitar and spelling out the name of Elvis were among the wreaths from family and friends at the funeral of Elvis impersonator Paul Barkham.
His funeral service held at Park Wood crematorium, Elland, included images of his idol and his coffin was carried into Park Wood to the music of My Way which was followed by The Wonder of You and American Trilogy.
Paul, whose home at Bridge End, Rastrick, was a shrine to Elvis, died on January 8 on what would have been Elvis's birthday.
