Multi-million pound restoration project
One of Gloucester’s “unsung historical treasures” will be restored to former glory as a major regeneration project gets underway.
The churchyard at St Mary de Crypt in Southgate Street will be closed for more than a year as work at the centuries-old church gets underway.

Tony Pugh 1935 – 42
The funeral for Tony Pugh was held on 26th January 2016 at the Northgate Methodist Chuch of St John. The following Old Cryptians were able to attend, some with their wives: Richard Browning, Eric Stephens, Howard Allen, Jill Harvey, Roger Davis and Mike Nuth. A number of Masonic members were also present as was Nikki Arthy representing St Mary De Crypt, with others from that community, as well as the Discover De Crypt group. The School was represented by the Headmaster and Sue Wales.
Tony was a long standing and enthusiastic member of the Old Cryptians Club and supported the Club’s activities into his 90th year. He will be remembered for the solemn roll call at the Annual Dinner of Old Cryptians who died in the year. He was often called upon to say grace at this and other dinners. He simply loved his old School.
Tony was also Churchwarden of St. Mary de Crypt church for many years.
A full obituary will be published in the 2016 Cryptian magazine.
