Alumni will be sad to learn that Richard Gracey died on 3rd December 2019, aged 83. He was, of course, a much loved husband, father and grandfather, and he remained a steadfast friend of Hilden Grange, having been Proprietor and Headmaster (1965 – 1986). Richard is greatly missed by all who knew him.
A Thanksgiving Service to celebrate his life will be held in Tonbridge School Chapel on 26th March 2020 at 2.30 p.m. to which all are welcome.
