Deceased Fellows

Sadly, a number of our Fellows have passed away. We record their passing in our Annual Review and at our Annual General Meeting, as well as here on our website. We also have an obituary published for each deceased Fellow in the Academy magazine.

When Fellows are particularly well-known in the wider community we note their passing on the home page of our website. The list of those Fellows who has passed away in recent years is below. Their entry below, notes the magazine issue which carries their obituary.
