Nick Gale RIP

Well it does to the people who post here... dispassionate and reasoned debate, with a good deal of humour thrown in for good measure.

Shocked and devastated to learn this morning of the tragic death yesterday of Nick Gale (former DoM at St George's cathedral, Southwark) in an RTA in London. RIP Nick

Should anyone hear when/where Nick's funeral is to be, would you be so kind as to post details here?

I understand from a reliable source that the funeral will be at St George's Cathedral towards the end of next week. I will update info when things are finalized

I think the service at St George's (Thursday 26 March, 6 pm) will be a Mass for the repose of Nick's soul rather than the funeral. (The need for a post mortem will mean that the funeral date can't necessarily be fixed yet.) That's what I've heard, and seems to be what's on the St George's Cathedral web site, but Hare's source may well have information that supersedes this.

Thank you Hare, I'm too far away to attend but I will be there in spirit.
