The late Sir Roger Gifford

Sir Roger Gifford succumbed to a long-term illness and died on 25th May at only 65 years. As well as serving as Lord Mayor in 2012/13 and still being a serving Alderman, Sir Roger was a Past Master Musician (2016/17) and Past Master International Banker. He was due to become Master Cordwainer next month. Sir Roger was a Banker at Scandinavian Bank SEB and a champion of green finance. He will be sorely missed and our heartfelt sympathies go to his widow Dr Clare Taylor, Lady Gifford.
