In the twelve months between January 2018 and January 2019 we lost three of the Choristers from the consecration Choir of 1962 – Bob Carlton, Michael Newth and Duncan Gray. All three made their mark in the choir and at school, as indeed they did in their later lives: Bob, well known as a theatre director, and celebrated for his “Return To The Forbidden Planet”; Mike as an accomplished translator of early French; and Duncan as an exceptionally popular sports coach.

All three had the capacity to light up a room with their wit and sense of fun.

All three had much more to offer, and we have lost them far too soon, but they join a list which has already seen the premature losses of John Van Toren, Chas Greetham, Derek Hossle and Howard Milner.

The Friends of Coventry Cathedral was founded in 1934. It is an independent Charity No. 1061176 registered in England and Wales, with an annually elected Council.
