A Tribute to Stan Ashton

Tower Captain for 27 years
All Saints Church Clifton Church

On Monday 27th April, Stan Ashton was buried in Clifton churchyard. Stan had been a ringer all his life and was Tower Captain at Clifton for 27 years.

Normally his funeral/burial would have been marked by ringing the church bells in the Tower both before and after the service but in the current climate this was not possible.

With the Rector’s permission, ensuring social distancing and conforming to the limit the number of attendees at the burial, 4 members of the local tower walked to the churchyard and rang handbells. This comprised diminishing rounds before the service and some rounds on 8 and Plain Hunt Minor after the service.

The ringers were Terry Brown, Philippa Whittington, Frank Rivett and Russell Brown. We look forward to the time when we can celebrate his life with the bells he enjoyed ringing for so many years.
