The service at St Botolph's on 2 September will take the form of a Choral Requiem so we will be remembering him in parallel with his funeral, and the service will incorporate some of the choral music, readings and hymns which are being heard and sung at the services in Barham, so we can show unity with Fr Tanner's extended family at this time. Please continue to keep his daughters Mary-Ann (our former Administrator), Rebecca and Teresa in your thoughts and prayers.

An announcement will be made at a later date about a memorial service in the City.
