Service of Thanksgiving for Harry Smith

We were saddened by the recent death of Harry Smith, former Head of English, Housemaster of Yonge’s and Senior Boarding Master at Silcoates. Many will remember Harry for his combination of enthusiasm, professionalism and social skills which placed him high on the visiting list when pupils returned for a “catch up”. He will be sadly missed.


Below are the details for the Committal and Service of Thanksgiving for Harry, to which all friends and former colleagues are warmly invited:


Friday 11th May 2018


2.20pm Committal at Wakefield Crematorium

Followed by refreshments served at The New Wheel, Wrenthorpe


4.30pm Service of Thanksgiving at Silcoates Chapel

Followed by refreshments in the Dining Hall


If you are attending the Thanksgiving Service at Silcoates, we would kindly ask that you DO NOT arrive before 4.30pm. This will allow parents to collect their children from school before visitors arrive and to ensure parking spaces are available for guests.
