Deceased Pupils & Staff
- Published: Thursday, 01 April 2021 10:15
Every year since 1980 the Alumni have celebrated a Memorial Mass on, or near, the Feast of St Thomas More to remember, honour and pray for those former pupils, members of staff and governors who are now deceased.
In those early days the fact that there were deceased former pupils was a somewhat sobering thought since the eldest alumni would only have been in their mid-thirties, but every year more names have been added as word reaches us of new bereavements. Even now in the 2020s with the oldest former pupils still only in their early 70s names are added every year and not because of "old age". Tragedy strikes in the form of accidents, illness, suicide and, in some cases, murder and it is beholden upon all of us alumni who continue to enjoy life and reap its rewards to pause and pay our respects to those less fortunate than ourselves.
The list that follows is undoubtedly incomplete and we are indebted to those family and friends who, over the years, have passed on the sad news of a bereavement that allows us to add yet another name to this roll-call. If you are aware of any names that should be on the list but are missing (whether pupil, staff or governor) please send us the relevant information via the Contact Us feature of this website.
