Sad to hear of Clifford's death. I listened to his music in the seventies but only bought a cd of his just recently. He was certainly a great singer songwriter.
Sympathies to Clifford's family an just to let them know that his music and lyrics have been a true source of enjoyment to me over the years.
I've just heard the sad news, deepest sympathies to all his family. Clifford will live on through his beautiful music. Rest in Peace Clifford.
I am so sorry to hear about the death of Cliff, his music has brought me much pleasure over the last 18 years since I first discovered him and I have managed to collect everything he has recorded, as far as I know.
A great loss, I remember well the Far Forest days of Cliff Ward and the Cruiser's, and "Home thoughts" is very special to me and my wife Angie.
May you now be free from your pain & suffering. Although i never knew you your wonderful music will be with me always. Rest in peace Cliff.
I was informed of Clifford's death out of the blue whilst at work the other day. Although I had not purchased a Clifford T Ward record since Home Thoughts in the seventies, the news genuinely saddened me. The songs Gaye and Home Thoughts From Abroad were, and still are, two of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. It is undoubtedly my loss that I chose not to listen to his other works. I love music to this day and I try to keep up with what's going on at the moment. Amidst the likes of The Strokes, The White Stripes and others of that ilk which I find myself listening to these days, I regularly return to Gaye and Home Thoughts From Abroad and they move me as much today as they ever did. I think I will investigate further as I suspect I have been missing out all these years. Rest in peace Clifford.
So sorry to hear of Clifford's death.
We had some wonderful years listening to his music.
Thanks for that Clifford.
Linda & John xx

A VOICE HAS BEEN SILENCED

EVERY MORNING WITH WARM THOUGHTS WE WILL BE WOKEN
MEMORIES LIVE ON FOREVER AND EVER
CLIFF FORGET YOU NOT WE WILL NEVER.
GOD BLESS. ROY.

a man whos music and words i grew up with and will treasure for ever. my young children are all fans. goodbye old friend.
Sorry to hear of cliffords passing. My condolences go to his family. I have many happy memories from childhood being brought up listening to his music. The music is still as fresh and moving today.
I have always been touched by Clifford's music since first coming across him through Steve Merrick on Radio Trent.
The music in heaven will be so much sweeter now.
CLIFFORD T WARD was a friend I never met, but he will always be the greatest singer songwriter in my book, my condolences to his family and friends.
AN EARTHLY LOSS,
BUT HEAVENLY GAIN,
GOD SAID "COME",
AND CLIFFORD CAME.
Sincere to Pat and family Clifford is now at Peace but lives on with the music he left behind.
It was with great sadness I heard of Cliff's death. It is a great loss to British music an incomparable singer songwriter. We will ensure he is never forgotten and he will live on in his beautiful music. What a legacy he has left to us all. Our deepest sympathy to Pat and Family. Our thoughts are with you at this Christmas time. Carol Quaile
The world is a poorer place without him, but his music will live forever. Thank you Cliff for sharing it with us. Deepest condolences to Pat and his family and friends. Our thoughts are with you at this sad time. Fondest regards. Love, Carol
A great song-writer & nice guy. Sadly missed. Still, I have his music.
What a beautifully clear websight dedicated to a true artist. It was with a huge sadness that I listened to Terry Wogan's anouncement on Wednesday. I shed several tears on my way to work that morning. Clifford will be missed by many fans of his music and those who knew him personally. (He taught my brother, when a student, at Bewdley High School) Condolences to his family and friends.
Thankyou Cliff for the great songs.
It is with a heavy heart that I write this note of condolence to the family of Clifford. His music has been a part of my life and will always be so. I was lucky enough to meet a man I so admire at the last get together, so in my opinion, fate took a hand. I hope that his wife, children and grandchildren will always know that he was a great songwriter and that his lyrics are beyond compare. He has given me joy, helped in times of sadness and helped me see clearly when all there was mist before my eyes. If he has done this for me, then I guess he has done this and more for many others. His legacy is forever.
the good die young............
Thank you Clifford.
My Best wishes to you all
I will always treasure the songs that Cliff gave me. He was the most underrated musician that I can remember. My thoughts are with his family right now.
"A WORCESTER LAD"
Worcester's hills it's wooded vales,
The severns dreamy shore,
Belonged to you, and you to them,
A land that loved the son she bore,
In song you praised the poets work,
Men, inspired by the land they knew,
You understood and taught their words,
With a freshness, as a morning dew,
The accent that you gained in youth,
Thankfuly never left your side,
Reflected in the songs you wrote,
and captured in each word, with pride,
A worcestershire man, born and bred,
A man of faith, of love, integrity,
Yet of the praise, so well deserved,
Would shrug and smile, "its not for me",
I'd thank you for your friendship Cliff,
The laughs we had though times were tough,
What did I gain, should I be asked,
To be called your friend, reward enough.
James Davey (snr) December 2001
Will be sadly missed.
