Jack Southam RIP: 21st January 1928 – 6th November 2015
Jack will be remembered by the bellringers for his dedication to ringing and leadership of the North Mymms band for many years.
For many years he rang at St. Peter’s, St. Albans. He is named, along with his brother Tom, on a peal board, unusually formed in the stained glass of the north window of their ringing chamber. It commemorates the victory peal in 1945.
Jack will also be remembered for his reminiscences of his early life living with his parents in Hastings and then, his school years in St. Albans where he was evacuated, in 1940, with his school, to what was hoped was a quieter environment during the war years. Then his post war experiences in the Royal Corps of Signals in the north of England and occasionally his career and travels all over the country on behalf of Marconi Instruments.

Bishop Richard Chartres, the Bishop of London, was present at the Service which marked 900 years since the dedication of the new Norman building of St Albans Cathedral and saw seven new statues of Christian martyrs installed in niches in the nave screen at the cathedral.
The seven martyrs depicted are: Alban, Britain’s first saint, Amphibalus, Alban Roe, George Tankerfield, Elisabeth Romanova and Dietrich Bonhoeffer and a late 20th century martyr, Archbishop Oscar Romero, Archbishop of San Salvador.
