One of our bell ringers, Clive Stephenson, had the honour of ringing at Baroness Thatcher’s funeral on 17thApril. He was actually ringing at St Clement Danes in The Strand, which is the RAF church. The bells started ringing as the funeral procession left Westminster and continued until it’s arrival at St Clement Danes where there was a short service. The coffin was then transferred to a gun carriage and the bells rang again as she continued her journey to St Paul’s for the funeral service proper.
