THE funeral of a prominent member of the Sikh community took place yesterday.
Mourners gathered from all over the district to pay their respects to Tarsam Singh Rana at the Sikh temple at Hillhouse.
The ceremony was followed by a service at Huddersfield Crematorium in Fixby.
Mr Singh Rana served as treasurer and registrar of the Sikh temple for 10 years.
He helped to raise funds for the temple building on Hillhouse Lane, which was built in 1997.
Originally from the Punjab region of India, he moved to Huddersfield in the 1960s to work in the mills.
He went on to work as a Punjabi interpreter at Huddersfield Magistrates’ Court.
Mr Singh Rana leaves behind a widow Gurmit Kaur Rana, a son and three daughters.
The Fartown man died, aged 75, following an incident at his home in Alder Street on May 6. Mr Singh Rana’s son Jasknwal Rana, 32, is due to stand trial for manslaughter later this year.
