Sir Marcus Worsley (1925-2012)

We are very sorry to report the death of our patron Sir Marcus Worsley, of Hovingham Hall, North Yorkshire.

Although in latter years, Sir Marcus played a very quiet role in the Society, he had always shown great interest in all our activities, and only ill-health prevented him from being more active. Members who attended the Hovingham weekend the YAS held in 2004 will remember him particularly; he had very definite ideas about what he wanted to see, attending the lectures and entertaining the Society in Hovingham Hall in the evening. Those who knew him will remember his fondly, and our condolences go out to his sons and daughter, and their families.

A memorial service will be held in York Minster at 2pm on 31st January. Will those planning to attend the Memorial Service kindly email the Hovingham Estate Office memorial@hovingham.co.uk
