Nigel developed dementia over the past year and was cared for at home until his last few weeks. He then received excellent palliative care in Maidstone Hospital and at the Tunbridge Wells Care Centre Nursing Home until he passed away peacefully on 4th September 2020, surrounded by family.

Nigel had a strong Christian faith and was sure in the hope of Heaven. One of His favourite Christian song-writers was Stuart Townend and he loved this final verse from the hymn ‘There is a hope’:

There is a hope that stands the test of time,
That lifts my eyes beyond the beckoning grave,
To see the matchless beauty of a day divine
When I behold His face!
When sufferings cease and sorrows die,
And every longing satisfied.
Then joy unspeakable will flood my soul,
For I am truly home.

The family have chosen two charities for those who would like to make a donation in his memory, the Keswick Convention Trust and Dementia UK. For many years Nigel and his wife Helen were involved in helping to lead and support the Keswick Convention, a Christian organisation known for great Bible teaching. During the last weeks of Nigel’s illness, the Admiral Nurse Helpline from Dementia UK provided practical support and advice to ensure that Nigel received the best possible care. You can donate to Dementia UK via the given Justgiving link. For Keswick Ministries, please visit https://keswickministries.org/donate/

Nigel’s funeral on 22 September is for close family only, due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, there will be an online thanksgiving for Nigel on Saturday 24th October (Nigel’s birthday) at 2.30pm UK time. Details will be posted shortly.
