Service to be held for Lord Waddington
A thanksgiving service will be held for Lord David Waddington in Britain on Thursday.
Lord Waddington, Governor of Bermuda from 1992 to 1997 and a key political figure in the UK, died on February 23, aged 87. According to an obituary announcement in The Daily Telegraph, a private cremation will take place before the thanksgiving service at St John the Baptist Church, Horsington, Somerset, on Thursday at 1.30pm.
