From Verena Clark of the Chiltern Open Air Museum Museum where Lawford has been working recently.
Lawford died peacefully at 12.15am on 15th May 2015 at Buckingham House Nursing Home. I am pleased to say that he did not suffer in his last days
and the staff at the home looked after him very well. He was pleased to be there and not at home alone.
His passing will be a big loss to us all as we all knew and respected Lawford for his immense talents and practical capabilities.
The funeral will be on Monday June 1st at 2.30pm at Chilterns Crematorium, (Postcode HP7 OND), in the Milton Chapel.
Afterwards, everyone is invited back to the Chiltern Open Air Museum (post code HP8 4AB in Chalfont St Giles) for tea and the opportunity to see the place which Lawford loved and where he gave so much of his time.
Please pass this invitation on to as many people as you wish to who knew Lawford from his BBC days. .
I would be grateful if you could reply to firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know if you are coming to either the service and/or the tea as I am catering for the event.
Before joining P&ID where he worked until his retirement 20 years ago, he had been in Telecine. His “Brief History of Telecine in the BBC”, written in 1993 in association with Geoff Rowlands, is reproduced in full under Telecine & FR on the main website.
