I have thought about this recently and I'd do the same. I'd also be massively annoyed with Villa if I notified them of losing a relative and I wasn't allowed to transfer the ticket. I feel like there must be compassionate reasons in the T&Cs that would allow you to keep the ticket

I'd also do the same and keep it, I don't think its quite so clear cut that its the morally right thing to do mind.

I think itís reasonable to do this when you have someone in mind who is on the waiting list. It is queue jumping, but if your dad has just died and your son is in the waiting list for example, it definitely makes sense to hold that space til your son gets to the top.
Itís not exactly right, but itís kind of sensible.

Advice required. Found out at the weekend that a mate of mine has renewed and has also renewed his fathers ticket even though he passed away during last season. Now I've got other mates on the waiting list and I know there's loads of you out there also on the waiting list.
Him renewing his Dad's ticket doesn't sit right with me but what to do ?
He doesn't sit with me but with another two STH's so wouldn't be sat on his own.
keep the ticket

The lad I go with has a one year old son and we are already thinking about getting him on the waiting list. It might take years for him to get to the top and be offered one, and then how many seasons to get it moved close to us in the middle of the upper Holte.

No doubt after all that, he won't like football!

As for the death situation, check out the terms and conditions here;

https://tickets.avfc.co.uk/screenloader.aspx?type=include&page=usercontent/documents/html/tandc.html

3.16 If a Season Ticket Holder dies, the Season Ticket may be transferred to an immediate family member with the consent of the Club and upon the provision of a copy of the Season Ticket Holderís death certificate and confirmation from the executor of the will of the Season Ticket Holder, administrator or other person responsible for handling the affairs of the deceased, that the family member is entitled to receive the Season Ticket. The Club may request additional information to clarify the position as it sees fit and will be dealt with on a case by case basis. The season ticket will be transferred to the fan ID of the family member but no booking history or Pride Rewards points will be transferred from the account of the deceased. If the concession conditions are no longer satisfied an upgrade price may be required to be paid for the remainder of the Season. Pro rata refunds will only be considered and granted at the discretion of the Club on a case by case basis.

If it's morally right to allow other people at the top of the list have the ticket in such circumstances then surely the same should apply to individual games that an ST holder can't attend.  That doesn't happen does it?  They're either put up for resale which I assume is first come first served or more than likely as people can't be arsed going through the process of all that they are given to a friend or family member for individual matches which is what I and my ST group do. 

Personally, I'd like to pass on my ST to my daughter when I die and having invested in the club for over 50 years I hope I'm allowed to as the ST is a heirloom after 50 odd years when for many of those years it was an Albatross around the neck.

edit: wasn't aware of the rule posted above.  Alles Klar!

Thanks for all the comments. I wouldn't grass obviously but did feel that with so many waiting it wasn't great to be keeping a ticket in the name of someone who was on screen as a HEITS on Sunday (wonder how many more there are !). Didn't know about that rule which seems to make sense and provides reasonable direction as well.

There must be hundreds of HEITS still holding season tickets.

Is there anybody not renewing or still thinking about it for whatever reason?

Makes you feel sorry for the HEITQ.
