We understand that Tim Berry, senior partner at Harris & Harris of Wells and a long-standing member of the Society, has died after a short illness. A specialist in ecclesiastical and charity law, Tim served as Diocesan Registrar for the Diocese of Bath and Wells from 1993 to 2015 and for the Diocese of Bristol from 1997 until 2015.
He was a friend to many members, especially to those who serve as registrars, and a source of sound common sense. His Christian faith was deep-rooted, not worn on his sleeve, but manifest in the integrity with which he approached his work as a trusted adviser to many in the diocese and in his secular practice.
Our thoughts are with his wife and family. May he rest in peace, and rise in glory.
