Comfort, hope and peace for the living and the departed

A Cookham Dean man fell in action. The church comforted his grieving family.

We grieve to record the death of 2nd. Lieut Frank Saxon Snell, killed in action on July 11th:- the only son of Churchwarden and Mrs. Snell aged 29. Words cannot express what so many of us have felt for those near and dear to him in their hour of sorrow. A Requiem Celebration of Holy Communion was held in Church on Saturday, July, 22nd, at 10.45 a.m.: a Service we believe, of comfort and hope and peace, both for the living and the departed.
