Tributes have been paid following the death of a Burntwood councillor.

The funeral of Steve Taylor – who sat on Burntwood Town Council – took place this week.

Steve Taylor

He had also previously served on Lichfield District Council between 2011 and 2015.

Cllr Steve Norman, leader of the Labour group at the council, said:

“It’s another sad loss for the district. This is a member of my group who served a term on the Chasetown ward and was still on Burntwood Town Council.

“He was a strong member of St John’s Church and the Chase Terrace community.

“He was very good at meeting to people and listening to residents.

“He will be missed.”

Cllr Doug Pullen, the Conservative leader of Lichfield District Council, added:

“I would like to pay tribute to the hard work and dedication Cllr Taylor showed as a member of this authority.

“I think it would be wildly disingenuous to suggest Cllr Taylor or I were friends, but what I do know is that he was a committed ward councillor who will be missed by this authority, as well as his friends and family.”

  1. I was very sorry to hear of the death of Steve Taylor. He was a neighbour of mine and always struck me as someone who genuinely cared about our community. This is a very sad loss for his family and friends and also for the people of the community he served.

  2. From my limited time dealing with Steve I found him to be an engaging and thoughtful person. I can’t imagine how hard this must be for his family and friends to lose someone at this time period so I send them my deepest condolences
