    Weʼve raised £3,124 to Create a memorial for our friend Bill Pearson

    Funded on Friday, 24th July 2020

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Sadly, our friend, colleague, boss and mentor Bill Pearson passed away due to respiratory failure at the beginning of March. He has no living family to say farewell or remember him.

    This page has been set up to raise the money to give him the memorial and send off that he deserves.

    Due to the current state of the world Bill will be cremated and scattered in private, with nobody allowed to attend to say goodbye. His ashes will be laid to rest at Woking Crematorium.

    Remaining anonymous in a cemetery is bollocks. Bill deserves more than that.

    If the studios will let us we would love to place a couple of benches in Bill’s honour at Shepperton Studios (Bill’s home) and Bray Studios (Where he worked on Alien)

    If not....

    £1200 will get a rose bush and plaque in the garden

    £1500 will get a wall tablet in the garden

    £2500 will get a boulder with memorial plaque in the garden

    I know he’d be chuffed if there was some money left over to put behind the bar when we can meet at his favourite pub and share our memories of him.

    Times are very trying now, but let’s see what we can do.

        Heard the sad news just this week. I met Bill after he moved to Staines, and always enjoyed hearing him talk about his amazing work. Rest in peace Bill.
