Cathedral Minutes January 1961
Her Majesty’s Congé d’elire and letter recommendatory were received by the Chapter.
The Very Reverend George Edmund Reindorp Master of Arts Provost of the Cathedral Church in Southwark and Rector of St. Saviour with All Hallows Southwark was elected to the Bishopric. He would be enthroned in Holy Trinity Cathedral Church Guildford on the 12th April 1961.
An order of service for the Consecration was approved by the Chapter and it was agreed that 5000 copies should be ordered with the object of selling them as souvenirs at 2 shillings per copy to be ready for sale by Easter and then be sold prior to the Consecration Service. The service was to be televised as a live broadcast. Her Majesty, Prince Phillip, Princess Margaret and perhaps Mr Armstrong-Jones would be coming to the Consecration.
