Joan and Leslie Tissington of Bawtry both died at the age of 92 just over a fortnight apart.

An obituary described the pair as "a loving couple, much loved mum and dad of Linda, Nanna and Grandad of Katy and Lucy, also Big Nanna and Great Grandad to Max, Jackson and Austin."

The joint service and cremation will take place on February 15 at Rose Hill Crematorium at 11.40am.
