Parish & Ward Church of St. Botolph without Bishopsgate

The Revd Prebendary Alan Tanner RIP

We are sorry to have to announce the death of our former rector Fr Alan Tanner, who died yesterday, 5 August. The parish community sends its heartfelt sentiments of condolence to all the members of his family circle, mentioning especially his daughter Mary-Ann who was our parish Administrator.

Alan was a faithful Rector of St Botolph's from 1978 to 1997, supervising the restoration of the church after the two IRA bombs in 1992 and 1993. He was also Area Dean of the City from 1990-1997, having responsibility for up to a dozen churches at a time of great change and uncertainty in the City churches.
