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. The last service was on Friday 27th September 2019. The 2020 Service will be delayed due to the Covid-19 Pandemic and the new date posted as soon as it is confirmed.
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 and friends and family will be invited to join us at the service. If you would like to attend to remember somebody named below, please email email@example.com.
If you wish to submit a full obituary for a future edition of The Roedeanian, please contact Harriet de Bene.
