The Royal Borough of Greenwich is sending condolences following the sad news that a former Mayor has passed away.

Philip Graham, who was Mayor in 1984-85, worked tirelessly as a councillor for almost two decades, representing Woolwich Common, Eynsham and Middle Park wards respectively between 1978 and 1994.

The keen cricketer and film fanatic was particularly dedicated to supporting libraries and cultural activities.

Cllr Allan MacCarthy, who was Mayor in 2009-10, said: "Philip was a good old-fashioned man who was determined to represent people on an ordinary level and do his best for them while also supporting arts and leisure."


The funeral will be held on Wednesday 22 February at:

West Suffolk Crematorium,
Bury St Edmunds,
Suffolk IP28 6RR
