Ian Adams RIP - funeral and memorial arrangements

In our last post we reported the sad death of Ian Adams MBE, the senior member of St Botolph's congregation, and we are now able to give you news of the arrangements for his funeral and memorial services.

The funeral will take place next Tuesday, 29 August, at 2.45 at West Norwood Crematorium, Norwood High Street SE27 9JU. Professor Peter Galloway of the Queen's Chapel of the Savoy (Ian's Sunday church) will be officiating at this service.

We are honoured to have been asked to hold Ian's memorial here at St Botolph's, and the date is now confirmed as Wednesday 27 September. Following discussion with the family, this will take place in two parts - a Requiem Eucharist at 1.10pm (replacing the normal Wednesday service) at which the Celebrant will be our former Rector, Dr Alan McCormack.
After the service, members of the congregation are most welcome, if they have time, to come and join Ian's family and friends in the Hall for a sequence of music, readings and tributes.
