A remembrance service will be held following the death of St Albans cathedral’s head virger Paul Underhill.

In a statement on their Facebook page, the cathedral wrote: “We are sad to announce the sudden death of our head virger, Paul Underhill.

“He has served the cathedral and diocese for just under 30 years and died following a stroke on Tuesday, September 26.”

The regular midday Eucharist service tomorrow (27) will be a requiem for him.

A requiem is a service to send off the souls of the dead.

Funeral details will be announced shortly.
