Special memorial installed in Norwich Cathedral to remember those who have died from coronavirus in Norfolk

A special memorial to those who have died from Coronavirus in Norfolk has been installed at Norwich Cathedral.

Over 460 crosses have been placed in front of the altar by Revd Canon Andy Bryand, the Cathedral's Canon for Mission and Pastoral Care. Each cross represents somebody who has died from Covid-19 in the county.

A single candle has been placed in the middle of the memorial which on Monday was blessed by the Bishop of Norwich, The Rt Revd Graham Usher. It was also visited by Lady Dannatt, the Lord-Lieutenant of Norfolk and her husband General Lord Dannatt.

The public were able to view the memorial for the first time on Monday when the Cathedral reopened its doors for individual prayer. It's part of the phased reopening of the Cathedral which has been closed since March 23 as a result of the pandemic.

Norwich Cathedral is now open daily from 10am until 4pm. Safety measures have been put in place to keep people as safe as possible when they visit.

A video has been published on the Cathedral’s website and YouTube channel to show people what to expect when they visit.
