The funeral service of Sir Peter Mansfield will be held at 12 noon on Wednesday 1 March at St. John’s Church, Middle St, Beeston, Nottingham NG9 1GA. All those who knew Sir Peter or who want to pay their respects are welcome to attend.

The funeral will be followed by a private interment at Beeston Cemetery, for close family and invited friends and colleagues only.

Details of the wake are yet to be confirmed. The funeral cortege will pass through University Park between 11.15am and 12pm noon on Wednesday 1 March. The car will enter through West Entrance, making its way around Beeston Lane and then back through Cut Through Lane, leaving through West Entrance again. A map of the route is available to view online. Staff and students are encouraged to line the route to pay their respects to Sir Peter.

Sir Peter’s family have asked that rather than flowers those who want to can send a donation to the City Hospital Stroke Unit who cared for Sir Peter in his last few days. Donations can be made online.

The University has set up an online book of condolence and a picture gallery of Sir Peter through the years.

Sir Peter Mansfield’s immense contribution to science and technology is unmatchable.
I got to know Sir Peter and the family through my profession. I knew he was not keeping good health but didn’t know that the end would come so soon. My heart goes with Lady Jean and the family.
