We were deeply saddened to hear of the death of our very good friend and former colleague, Retired Chief Inspector Phillip 'Phil' Every who died on 1st September 2018 in Horsham, Sussex. 

Phil is survived by his wife Nicky, other relatives and friends in Bermuda and around the World. Cremain will take place in the U.K. and a Memorial Service will be held later in Bermuda details of which will be announced in due course.  

 Condolences can be sent to:-

Mrs. N. Every,

The Beaches, 3 Willowmead, Southwater, Horsham RH13 9AT, England.  Or by email to. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

Phil was a very popular and highly respected police officer who was also very liked by all who served with him.  On behalf of all of our ExPo colleagues we send our sincere condolences to Nicky and to all of Phil's family and friends.  

Editors note - Unfortunately, I'm presently in the U.K. to help celebrate my mother's 100th birthday, and as a result, I don't have access to Phil's files at Prospect, and can't access our usual photo files. As soon as I return from the U.K. we will update this entry.


UPDATE  -    We have received the following information from Nicky with regard to funeral arrangements for Phil in the U.K.

Phil Taylor
Had the pleasure of working with Phil as young PC's in Swansea. Was very well liked and respected there, and it was with mixed feelings we said farewell as he embarked on his new career in Bermuda. Although he left 47 years ago, he is still fondly remembered by many of his old colleagues. As the secretary of the Swansea branch of Narpo, I have been busy receiving calls from ex colleagues and friends. I have also placed the news on our Facebook page, Swansea Narpo, which you are welcome to view, but may need to ask to join to do so. R.I.P. PhilEditors note - Many thanks for your email Phil. Just to avoid any confusion I should point out that we also have a retired BPS officer by the name of Phil Taylor.

Phil was in my intake to Bermuda in 1971and we shared a house for some time in Riddles Bay. We have kept in touch over the years. My wife Sue and I have seen Phil and Nicky on a regular basis and were able to visit him at their home in Sussex only a week before he passed on. We were to be able to say "Goodbye" to him and it was an honour and pleasure to have known him. The man known in later years in Bermuda as "Chief" will be sadly missed. Mike Brown (ex 393 MCPS)Editors note - Many thanks for writing Mike. I believe your sentiments are shared by all of us who knew Phil.

Its a Sad day. I had the pleasure of working with Phil in Marine Section for a number of years. He was a fantastic supervisor and mentor. He was an inspiration to all of us who worked in the office. The work got done with lots of laughs and enjoyment. He will be a big miss. Rest in peace Phil. Mark Bothello 467
