It is with great sadness that we write with the news that Paul Rayner died peacefully at home on Thursday 21st January 2021,
surrounded by his family, and only shortly after Canon Aidan had visited him
and administered the last rites
Paul had been associated with
Norwich Cathedral as a Chorister, server and head server for over 70 years. He
will be greatly missed in the life of the Cathedral, by those who knew
him, and especially those who sang and served with him. His funeral was held at Norwich Cathedral following his body laying at rest in St Luke's' chapel. The funeral can be seen on the Norwich Cathedral YouTube channel, available on the link below, and we hope
that in due course, when it is safe to do so, the choir, servers and ex-choristers will be
able to play their part.
The Norwich Cathedral Ex-Choristers Guild express their heartfelt condolences to Ann and all of Paul's immediate and extended family, whilst also being thankful that many of us were privileged to have known Paul through singing, serving and the Cathedral community.
