|Past Master Trevor Eldrid (1916-2011) in 1977, the year he was Master|
By tradition and if the family wish the Company hold a memorial service for past masters at St Michael's, Cornhill. On the morning of 20 April a service was conducted by Past Master Rev Peter Taylor in memory of Trevor Eldrid (see post in January).
There was a good turn out and Rev Peter Taylor conducted the service with considerable affection and full recognition of Trevor's great contribution to the Company. Past Master Sir Nicholas Jackson played the newly restored organ built by Renatus Harris in 1684 and substantially modified since 1790. He was one of the patrons of the Appeal Committee and with others ensured this important organ has been restored to its former glory.
A lunch was subsequently held for those who attended, including Trevor's wife Pam, at the Hall afterwards.
