My childhood is full of memories of Dr B & his family. He was generous in many ways, always there to encourage me spiritually & I was one of the many recipients of J. C Ryle's Expository Thoughts, amongst other books! We had many happy holidays in Babbacombe, some of which were spent with Brian & Molly. He was full of fun, had a great sense of humour & always amused us as he could never remember our names! Praise God he is now in glory. Much love & prayers to Molly & the wider family.

Dear Molly and Family
It was a great joy to join you all today to remember and give thanks for Brian. We have many happy memories of Brian, and thank God for his kindness and generosity to us as a family.
Be assured of our prayers for you.

I held Dr Beardsworth in very high esteem. As a young Funeral Director in the 70s just starting my career, he was always on hand as a trusted friend and gave his support, and guidance, for which I will be eternally grateful. One of the old school of Doctors and he will be most sadly missed. Heartfelt sympathy to Mrs Beardsworth and her family. RIP

“Doc B”, as he was known affectionately by Marion and I, and by the young church members we pastored in the 1980s in Loughborough, was hugely loved and highly respected. At a time when our emerging membership was mostly well under thirty years of age, he brought wise, mature balance and enormous encouragement to bear on the infant work in his frequent visits to us for Sunday morning ministry. Everyone looked forward to “Doc B’s” visits and ministry! He could combine a family GP’s careful analysis of issues with a gentle preaching manner that meant however serious the biblical message, our hearts were the more willing to receive it. Whether it was while we met in our home, in the very early years, or in our own church premises from 1985, he cut the same figure: leaning on the lectern, a man with a shock of hair, half-rimmed spectacles, through, but mostly over which he would look and smile at us he would bring serious truths from the Bible to bear upon us. In short, we loved him, especially for that infectious laugh of his!
Marion and I will always remember Brian for his unstinting encouragement, friendship and generosity of heart and bank balance. His gift of Calvin’s commentaries are still here beside me in my study, and are still deployed in my research work into traumatic disasters, personal experiences he was no stranger to himself; how much that fact enhanced his capacity to feel what hurting people felt as well as his ability to bring the word of God to bear in strikingly relevant ways upon our little lives. In short, we loved him too.
“Doc B” = huge loss. God bless and comfort you, Molly and your family.

With love in Christ Jesus,
Roger & Marion Abbott.

Dr. B., was a lovely, caring, generous man, doctor. A man who had a thirst for God who wanted others to grasp more & more in the dept of the Almighty God.
