At the end of September every year, Roedean remembers the Lawrence Sisters and all ORs and former staff we have lost throughout the previous year at our Founders' Day and Commemoration Service in the School Chapel. This year the service was on Friday 28th September at 4.20 pm.


Friends and family are invited to publish announcements on this page by emailing the Alumnae Office.  Announcements will remain on the website until the person has been remembered at the service. 


If you wish to submit a full obituary for a future edition of The Roedeanian, please contact Harriet de Bene.
