David Hoyle - A Collection of Cowling Local History Memories
Supplied by: Cowling Moonrakers History Group.
Added to: Local History & Information
On the 4th January 2005, David began a session of voice recordings with Cowling History Group Moonrakers.

David personally was recorded on to 2 CD's on his own and also did 2 more with another local man Norman R Binns.

David had a unique way of telling tales of the village in its native dialect, something that is now very rare but thankfully captured for posterity by Moonrakers for future generations.

Sadly David passed away on the 14th of March 2009, aged 83 years old.

As a memorial to David, Moonrakers have kindly given permission to Cowlingweb to put both CD 1 & 2 on the website for anyone in the world to listen to or download.

David was a real gentleman and although no longer with us he will always be remembered for his deep love of the people and the history of Cowling.

Cowling Cricket Club tribute to David Hoyle
Supplied By: Bob Richardson (Secretary). Received Via Email
Cowling Cricket Club has lost a great friend and stalwart supporter, with the passing of our President David Hoyle. David has been associated with the Cricket Club for around seventy years and he has always been deeply involved in the welfare of the club. After the Second World War, David and a few others were instrumental in reviving the cricket club and laying sound foundations for the club and ground which we have today.

As a trustee he was responsible for the building and financing of the new pavillion and changing rooms and the laying of a road down to the new facilities.

He played cricket at Cowling for many years, batting and bowling slow right arm. For some years he was the Captain, and in his time as a player the club won both cup and league honours. When his playing days were over, he served on the Committee and guided the club forward using his contacts, experience and common sense. Over the years he helped raise a lot of money for the development of cricket in Cowling, the latest being selling the watercolour ( which he painted and gave to our club ) of cricket at Cowling and the sale of fifty prints. This contribution ensured that the new garage and scorebox was built in 2007.

He supported the club keenly, rarely missing a home game. He always had time for a chat with players and spectators, offering words of wit and humour (and sometimes advice).

David's contribution to the Cricket Club is immeasurable. He cannot be replaced, but we will always remember his support, his wise words at Committee meetings, his wit, and his deep love of cricket. All involved at the Cricket Club will miss him tremendously.

Moonrakers would like to express their great sadness at the death of David Hoyle. David was a key, vital member of our group. He had an important contributor to the 1980 book, “Cowling a Moorland Parish” – the first reference for all Cowling history. He was a keen local historian and great storyteller, amongst his many other talents and interests. David was a wonderful inspiration to our younger members, always encouraging, appreciating and setting a fine role model. His local history legacy will live on in the book and the vivid, vastly entertaining, living history CD’s he recorded. David was a gentleman, who lived a long life to the full, giving his time to various aspects of village life. Cowling can be very proud of such a man.

It is with great sadness we inform you of the death of David W. Hoyle, husband of the late Vera, and formerly of Cowling, Foulridge and lately Townend Close, Glusburn.

David W. Hoyle

June 1925 - March 2009

David was a Joiner, undertaker, cricketer, Cowling Parish Councillor, singer, amateur actor, local historian, and well respected artist with many of his wonderful pictures can be seen on the Moonrakers - Cowling History site. David has given freely of his local knowledge and all his photographs for our web sites, and has always encouraged the young to get involved when it came to Cowling History. He has bravely accepted the many tragedies life has thrown at him, and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Joan M. Tindale. - Cowling Historian & Parish Councillor.

David never really understood the concept of what a website was but that never stopped him from showing his support and help!
On many occasions David would say to me "It is good that you young people are showing interest in the history of this village" and every time I would point out that if it was not for people like him I personally would understand a lot less and would never have known about many interesting things.

In life we meet people who make a long lasting impression and I am proud and feel privileged to say David Hoyle is one of those people who will forever leave a lasting impression on me.
