Farewell to Martin Taylor

Published: 28 March 2018

Cathedral Verger, Martin Taylor has decided to leave the Cathedral and will be verging for the last time on Easter Day, 1 April 2018.

Our Logistics Officer, Peter Mellor, has written a few words about Martin’s time here at Manchester Cathedral.

"The date is especially important as it will be exactly 26 years to the day, since he started as a verger. I will not say any more about it being April Fool’s Day!

During the 26 years Martin has worked as a verger, he has been in attendance at a great number of special services, including both visits by HM Queen.

Martin’s dedication to his work and his vast knowledge of the Cathedral’s rich history will be greatly missed, but we wish him all the best for the future and I am sure he will find new ways to fill his time, and continue to enjoy his passion for food and the odd glass of burgundy".
