|Full name||Garry John Purdham|
|Egremont, Cumbria, England|
|Died||2 June 2010 (aged 31)|
|Gosforth, Cumbria, England|
On 2 June 2010, Purdham was working with his uncle mending a wire fence on his father's farm near the Red Admiral Hotel at Boonhead, near Gosforth when he was shot and killed. He became the ninth murder victim of spree killer Derrick Bird, who killed 12 people and injured 11 others that day before committing suicide. It was claimed by Purdham's neighbours that he was aware of Bird's rampage from radio broadcasts and recognised Bird's vehicle as it passed. It is alleged that Purdham was attempting to subdue Bird with a fence post when he was shot and killed.
In honour of Purdham and the other Cumbria victims, one minute's silence was observed before every rugby league match played in England on the weekend of 5–6 June 2010.
