Rt Hon Lord Field of Birkenhead, CH

24 Apr 2024

We are saddened to learn today of the death of former Labour minister and welfare campaigner Frank Field (Rt Hon Lord Field of Birkenhead, CH) who has died at the age of 81. Lord Field, who dedicated his career to tackling social issues, including child poverty and modern slavery, served as an MP for 40 years.

From 2001 – 2007 Lord Field was Chair of The Churches Conservation Trust and served as a Vice President from 2014. He has been described by many as a champion of historic churches and had a particular interest in reconnecting them with their communities. Our thoughts and condolences are with his family at this time.
