Old Roedeanian Obituaries

2015's Founders and Commemoration Day Service was held on Friday 25th September in the Roedean Chapel.


The Founders’ Day service was a moving occasion when we remembered the Lawrence sisters and all who were involved in the founding of Roedean. The school community was joined by a number of ORs and former members of staff, and we enjoyed the beautiful singing of the choir in the Chapel and, as the names of those who have passed away over this last year were read out, a candle was lit for each by two students in remembrance. It was a beautiful and poignant service.
