Sir Miles Warren
The Cathedral community extends its sympathy to the family of renowned Christchurch architect Sir Miles Warren who passed away this week. Sir Miles had a long-standing relationship with the Cathedral in the Square, overseeing both the earthquake strengthening in 1999/2000 and the fabric refurbishment in 2007/08. In recognition of this work, Sir Miles was made a member of the Cathedral’s Order of Canons Almoner in 2008.
His legacy will be forever remembered.
Rest eternal grant unto him, O Lord. And let light perpetual shine upon him. May he rest in peace.
Sir Miles' funeral was held on Thursday 18 August in the Christ's College Chapel. The service can be viewed here.
