VALE:Chevalier the Very Reverend Arthur John Grimshaw GCSJ
Chevalier the Very Reverend Arthur Grimshaw GCSJ passed away on 6th September 2019 after struggling with the effects of head injuries from a fall, and surgery over the previous two weeks.
His funeral was held in Holy Trinity Church, Fortitude Valley, on Monday, 16th September, at 2-00pm. Members of the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem attended together with Members of the Order of St Lazarus and sat, robed, as a group in pews reserved for them by the church. As Chevalier Arthur was involved in many areas, such as the Order of Saint John, the Order of St Lazarus, Dean and subsequently Dean Emeritus of St John’s Cathedral, an authority on church music, and in many areas of community life, the church was filled to capacity, and among the mourners were the Governor of Queensland, the Primate Archbishop of the Anglican Church, a former Primate and Governor- General, many other Bishops and Clergy, and members of the several congregations and community groups which Chevalier Arthur had served.
The Order expresses its thoughts and sympathies to Arthur’s wife, Mary, and the family.
