The world has lost a very nice man and superbe musician.
I'm sure Woolly is now with Mel and I can only say, Thank you for the wonderful music.

Dear All,

Thank you for all the wonderful posts to Woolly on this website.
I would also like to say a heartfelt thank you to all of you who were able to attend Woolly's funeral.
I always knew I shared him with those who loved his music.

He was a darling man to have loved and been loved by, and I'm thankful for the time I had with him.

You all knew his presence on stage, and I'm sure you can imagine how he filled our (quite small) London flat.
We shared a dry Northern sense of humour - we had lots and lots of laughter - a love of crosswords and quizzes and discussing
the strange goings on in the world.

I'll miss my tall gorgeous handsome talented funny man so, so much.

It makes me happy to know that you thought it was a lovely service and setting - there was never any doubt in my mind that we all had to say our farewells to our very dear Woolly in his beloved Saddleworth, surrounded by those who loved him.

With much love,

Sue

Dear Woolly!

We didn't know your reasons. But we have to accept your decision. I wish you a good journey through the universe.

My thoughts are with you.

The Valleys deep, the mountain so high, if you want to see God you to climb to the other side! God bless you Wooly and thank you for the love and inspiration you've given and left behind. PEACE!

Devastated - and can only imagine how bereft his loved ones must feel. Thanks Woolly for your wonderful contribution to Mandalaband's music, which will always be treasured. I would like to echo the thoughts of Robin Stapleford, a BJH fan who wrote to us so poignantly to say: Thank you David [Rohl] for putting Roots as the final track of BC-Ancestors. Its place there now takes on a greater significance. Very very moving to hear Woolly sing such sentiments: "The deepest roots that love sinks never die."

I have only heard of Woolly's death today and am deeply shocked. I was an old girlfriend of his in the 70's and remember a lovely, kind, intellegent person who made me laugh all the time. He had a close family and I fondly remember his parents and his sister Margaret who must be devastated at this terrible time. I am only sorry I couldn't attend his funeral and pay my respect.

Yes Woolly, you had and always will have fans also in ISRAEL.
Today, in your memory, I have listened to about 60 favorite songs of BJH.
RIP Woolly. Your fans from the holy land

I left a message in December as soon as I heard of Woolly's passing but I wanted to add another, following his funeral which I was honoured to attend. It was a lovely service in a beautiful church and I think Keith's eulogy was a fitting tribute to a gentle, talented man. I only met Woolly twice, quite recently, but I've been a fan since the 1960s. My sincere condolences go to Sue, Woolly's family, the band, and Keith & Monika. I truly hope that Woolly's found peace at last. XXX

Have left an earlier message but felt i wanted to say a few more words on the day of Woollys funeral, I could not be there in person but was there in spirit and planted my christmas tree in my garden this afternoon in memory of Woolly. I hung a heart and butterfly windchime from it. Rest easy old friend. may you find your peace and when you awake may that mocking bird sing sweetly with you in heaven. Love, Sue.x

Funerals are never easy things but I hope all went ok today. My sentiments go out to Sue and the greater Barclay family. A fantastic guy has gone to that great gig in the sky.

Ironically as I put my ipod shuffle on today on the train to work the first track to play was "Will To Fly" and the last before I got into my car home was "Night". How ironic.

RIP Woolly and thanks for the memories.

Not many words left to express my feeling. It's a never-met-friend who passed away. What comforts me is that his genius will never fully disappear. We all started to miss him and his musical views already. Rest In Peace for your deserve it

I am thankful for the contributions Woolly left in music for those of us who never knew him personally. The Master of the Mellotron has lost his battle with the devils of his life but not before he left his public legacy, something most of us will never be able to do. And then there were two: BJH,Beatles,The Who

Woolly - your passing away brings deep mourning to me and us all.

You taught me how to feel music and to separate musical expression from commercial entertainment. For 30 years again and again I return to you, your music, your soul. The more the deeper.

Thank you, Woolly, for that all.

A part of my youth has just left. He will remain in my memory.

Very upset to just hear that 'Woolly' has died. He was probably the biggest influence on my musical experiences, and hearing his soaring keyboards wafting across the corn stubble of Weeley in the late Summer of 1971 was the most moving musical experience I ever had; bringing tears of joy and pleasure to a teenager is remarkable, and proves his talent. He will be sadly and deeply missed. My thoughts also go to his family and those close to him. Happily, though, his music will live on for ever, and will still inspire those that appreciated him, and perhaps others in the future too. R.I.P.

Me, as an old Barclay James Harvest fan, was very astonished about this news. In 1990 I listened in the Hallenstadion in Zurich the sound of this beautiful music in front of the stage, and I will never forget it. I love the songs. I wish to the family all the best.

Being one of the first people to post in the book of condolences, I have been heartened by the wonderful messages that have been posted. As a sometime friend of Woolly, I would like to say, in my own small way, thank you to every single person who has taken the time to write here. At times, there have been tears in my eyes, as Woolly was a wonderfully funny, intelligent, caring and talented man. If only he knew of the genuine heartfelt outpouring of grief that has been posted here over the last month, then maybe, just maybe.

But, as a sufferer of depression myself, I know only too well how the condition can take hold.
I'm sorry I won't be able to be there for the service Woolly, but I'll be thinking of you, your family and friends during the afternoon. Farewell, and may you keep the heavenly mellotron in tune for aeons to come. Sleep well, and God bless. Our loss is heaven's gain old chum. I'll never forget the good times we had together at Hamble.

A terribly sad and tragic loss. Thoughts are with his family and friends, despite his leaving of a rich and inspiring musical legacy. Be at peace Woolly.

. and then there were two, but the music lives on forever in our house. I watched the Belin video yesterday and during the song 'Titles', with the film clips of the Beatles, I realised that both great bands were now down to two surviving members - Very sad. Woolly RIP.
