It is with great sadness that we announce the death of The Revd Canon David Isitt. Canon Isitt who was 81 passed away unexpectedly on Monday 10th August.

Canon Isitt had long term connections with Ely Diocese having served as Chaplain at King’s College Cambridge, incumbent at Harlton and Haslingfield, Assistant Chaplain at Trinity Hall Cambridge, Chaplain of St Edmund King and Martyr Cambridge, Chaplain at Fitzwilliam College Cambridge and until his death was in receipt of the Bishop’s Permission to Officiate in the Ely Diocese.

Canon Isitt leaves a widow Verity.

A funeral service will be held on the 26th August, 2.30pm at St Andrew & St Mary Granchester.
I shall remember David's contact with me with much gratitude (and I'm sure many others will too).
For his enthousiasm for many things, his making himself and his musicianship available, his sense of humour, those pianos, his down-to earth faith and spirituality encouraging growth in those he chaplained, that megaphone and the red wine - cheap but who cared when the music being made was such fun!
Not forgotten!
And then there's his love and knowledge of that building (I knew him at Trinity Hall but he was willing to cross boundaries!)
