Canon Peter Duplock RIP

Window, Holy Trinity Brussels

The Revd Canon Peter Montgomery Duplock OBE, (born 1916) died on Friday 16 September in a nursing home in Hindhead, England.

Canon Duplock had a distinguished ministry in this Diocese in Europe, serving first in Holy Trinity Geneva from 1964 - 1971 and then in Brussels with Charleroi and Liège from 1971-1981. In 1979 he was instrumental in establishing All Saints, Waterloo, as a daughter Church of Holy Trinity Brussels. (All Saints is now in the (US) Convocation of Episcopal Churches). He was also the Archdeacon of NW Europe in 1981 just before he retired.

May God grant his faithful servant the peace and joy of paradise.

  1. Thank you for your kind words about my father. He was an inspirational man who will be sadly missed. He died peacefully at the Royal Surrey County Hospital after a short illness but his health had been failing for the past couple of years. Towards the end of his life he developed an interest in the arts and wrote several poems including the one on the Ridley website (see link below). There will be a short cremation on Monday 3 October at midday at Guildford Crematorium and a Memorial Service with the burial of his ashes at Breamore church in Hampshire later in the month (date to be confirmed). We hope that this will be a celebration of his wonderful life and his work in the ministry.
