We arrived at the cathedral in the early evening when it was still light enough to see the snowdrops under the trees and the flag at half mast on the tower. Inside the great West door the Bishop and Dean waited to take us forward to the High Altar. In a simple and dignified service the coffin was brought into the cathedral that Thomas had loved and laid on a bier between four pillar candles to rest overnight in the vast silent space before committal and commemoration.


We have all been touched
by your kind messages of
comfort and support.

Thank you.
