Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor, 6th Duke of Westminster, KG, CB, CVO, OBE, TD, CD, DL
 
Requiem in pace
 
The University is sad to announce the death of his Grace, Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor, 6th Duke of Westminster and the University’s Chancellor, who died yesterday afternoon aged 64 at the Royal Preston Hospital in Lancashire. The Duke was installed as Foundation Chancellor in 2005 at a special service at Chester Cathedral. He was a tireless supporter of the University and used his influence to further the University’s interests at every opportunity. He represented the University on many ceremonial occasions. He was delighted to open the Westminster Building and Grosvenor House, reflecting his close association with the University. The University has lost a dear friend, enthusiastic backer and loyal champion.
 
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
 
Prof T J Wheeler DL,
 
Vice-Chancellor and Principal
