A funeral service for Roger Byrne was held at St Michaels however he is not buried there as he was cremated.Roger was living off Church Rd Flixton at the time of his death but he actually came from Gorton.Another Busby Baby babe who died at Munich was David Pegg.He was living on Gleneagles Rd Flixton at the time of his death and is buried in his home town of Doncaster.

Roger Byrne's son was born after his father's death and was also named Roger Byrne. The son went to Caius House school on Church Road then to William Hulme's Grammar.
