On the afternoon of Monday, 27th February 2023, it is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of one of the UK’s Dancing Legends – Blanche Ingle (Bateman), who fell quietly asleep,  at the age of 97.

Blanche had lived on her own  after Ken , her husband, passed away in 2005, in the home where she spent 94 years of her life.

She will be missed by Spencer McGuinness , her godson, and his Mum, Sue and many friends around the UK and the world.

Blanche’s funeral will be held on Wednesday 22nd March at 2pm at the Slough Crematorium, in Stoke Road, Slough, SL2 5AX, a very short taxi ride from Slough Train Station.
