Mr William Bissell

I was saddened to learn of the death on Wednesday of Mr William Bissell, at the age of 95.

Born in the West End, Mr Bissell was the long-standing licensee of Bissell's Bar in Polepark Road (see right) in the West End Ward, and was also a leading member of the Dundee Licensed Trade Association for many years.

Willie and Margaret Bissell and their sons were neighbours of ours when we were growing up back in the late 1960s and into the 1970s.

Hugely respected in the licensed trade and by all who knew him, Mr Bissell will be sadly missed and fondly remembered.
