Cedric Eldred (Traffic & Sales)
Sadly we hear that Cedric passed away on 13th April 2020 after a cardiac arrest. My sincere condolences go out to his wife Jean, his family, friends and former colleagues.

I believe Cedric started with Silver City before joining BUA in 1964 in Traffic as a Flight Controller, before becoming a Passenger Sales Rep for the Sales Dept in London W1 in 1970. Cedric left BCal in 1974 for Thomas Cook where he started their conference and incentive division. He then went to Travel Motivation in Epsom. Before starting his own business Associated Incentive Travel Ltd.

Cedric was still working full time at the age of 74 until he had a serious stroke which due to some mistreatment led to ongoing complications.

Cedric's service was held on Friday 15th May 2020 at Peterborough Crematorium.

Sadly due to Corona; attendance was limited to close family
