I have just been informed that John Elliott of Birtley died on Friday 18th September following a long illness. A most popular figure in the North East and another member of that great singing family gone. RIP

Very Sad news, Both John and Pete Elliott sang the songs of their father Jack with much so fun and enjoyment it was a pleasure to hear them and their sister Doreen Henderson perform. I didn't get to Birtley much since the 70's but when I did there was always a warm welcome from John, he was such a great person to know.

I'm very sorry to hear that. John was a grand man with a grand sense of humour. We had some great sessions years ago at Holmfirth and Sutton Bonington and quite a few other places. As Dave says, another member of an important singing family gone to the grave.

So sad to hear this news although it was not unexpected,

I saw Doreen and Brian at Saltburn FF and they said then that John was very poorly.

All the Elliott's were very supportive of everything Firm Friends did and it was a joy to have them at the singers weekend that I used to run.

My thoughts are with Pam and the family.

Been singing "Elliot" songs since I was 16 and started "going to Birtley" in 1966. Don't get back to the club much now just on holidays if we are in Durham on a Wednesday. I always think of John when I sing the £20 dog. Our thoughts are with all of the remaining family.

Sad news. All the Elliotts were/are such lovely people as well as fine singers, and the loss of yet another is very distressing.

SO sorry to hear this news via a telephone call from Bob Davenport. Nice man always treasured in my memory. He along with the rest of the family gave us such a wonderful welcome when we paid a visit from Ireland some time ago. My thoughts are with the entire family at this time.
