Elaine Wolfenden RIP


Elaine Wolfenden, the wife of the Revd Peter Wolfenden, was laid to rest today following a packed funeral in the 11th century church of St Wulfran in Ovingdean, Sussex.

The congregation included former parishioners from Malta and Gozo and Malaga, where Fr Peter had ministered in this diocese, as well as members from St Wulfran's itself. Elaine's children and grandchildren were surrounded by many long-standing friends who gave thanks for her remarkable life.

The former Dean of Gibraltar, the Very Revd Alan Woods and the former Chancellor of St Paul's Pro-Cathedral in Valetta, Malta, the Revd Canon Tom Mendel among the mourners present.

May she rest in peace.
