Keighley Town Chaplain privileged to help Sir Capt Tom "return home"

Keighley Town Chaplain Revd Dr Jonathan Pritchard has spoken of helping Captain Sir Tom Moore return back to “the place he considered home” after his ashes were buried in his family grave.

Revd Jonathan recently conducted a short service for the family at Morton Cemetery, Riddlesden, Keighley, West Yorkshire, on Monday.

“He was an extraordinary man who’s made a real significant difference in the life of our nation,” Revd Jonathan said.

“He lifted our spirits and raised our vision about what is possible”
