Des Round Tribute Page

Sadly, one of the longest-serving All Saints' Choir members, Des Round, passed away recently.  Here are some of the many tributes to his life in the choir and and his contribution to our church and community. 


Anne Wakefield's tribute received 13/9/21:

I remember when Jean and Des Round first joined All Saints’ Church many years ago, how very friendly they were and how quickly they were absorbed into the Church family. It was not long before Des was singing with the men’s choir, and what a bonus that was. Des, you were blessed with a beautiful voice and we were blessed to listen!

Thank you for your devoted years of service.

I shall remember Des for his friendship, good humour, and beautiful singing.
Now sing with the “Angel’s Choir”.

Very sorry to hear this news. I cannot think of my growing up at All Saints without calling Des and Jean to mind. He had many qualities for which to be grateful but his musicianship was something I particularly admired and his lovely voice. Sending my love to Jean.
