|We have received very sad news from Hexham where we learn that former Vicar of
Ecclesfield Ralph Mayland has died. Ralph Mayland was a charismatic Vicar at Ecclesfield
from 1972 to 1982. While at Ecclesfield, he oversaw a re-ordering which included a range of
changes including the completion of the nave altar. He lived in what was then the new
vicarage behind the church with his wife Jean and daughters Sarah and Alex.
He will be remembered with affection by many people and families in Ecclesfield.
He moved from Ecclesfield to become Canon Treasurer at York Minster. In York he oversaw
the completion of the huge project to underpin the foundations of the building and the recovery
from the fire in the South Transept.
Ralph died peacefully in hospital on April 27th aged 93. There will be a small private
cremation on 14th May and a memorial service in York Minster at a later date. RIP Ralph.
