Commemoration Service 2019

8th June 2019

The College holds a Commemoration Service annually to remember all those Somervillians who have died during the previous year.

The Service this year will be held on Saturday 8th June at 2.15pm in the College chapel and there is a list of those to be commemorated below.

All Somervillians are welcome to attend the Service, which will be followed by refreshments.

Please email Liz Cooke (elizabeth.cooke@some.ox.ac.uk) if you are aware of the death of any other Somervillian during the last year whose name does not appear on our list.

We regret that Somerville can only offer parking for Blue Badge holders. If you are planning to drive, we recommend use of the Pear Tree Park and Ride service, which stops very close to Somerville.
