Best job I ever had was working at Bayes in the 70’s. Robert was a great boss and his knowledge of music was off the scale. You will be greatly missed by many Bob not least by me. At peace now.

Linda Harris

Terrific Character Really put King’s Lynn on the map with his publications and photographs in his books. He will be greatly missed by the many that knew him.

I will always remember Bob as a great Chemistry teacher. His lessons brought back the fun for me especially when he was never quite sure of the outcome of an experiment!

Valerie Ford

Great man, taught me Chemistry and sold me many records, still in my collection, also loved his books, big loss for all of Kings Lynn.

So sad to lose my second cousin, Robert. He was my Mum's cousin and they lived as neighbours in their early years as their Dads bought houses next to each other. A true Booth polymath-so many different skills, interests and areas of knowledge. And mostly to me, a loved relative on that characterful side of my family. I will miss you.

Sara Stroet


We couldn't have been treated any better, our conversations and arrangements were dealt with the utmost respect and sensitivity. When the funeral day came everything was dignified and professional, my loved one couldn't have been in better care, very pleased and would definately recommend.
