Michael Lane

13 February 2023

The members of East Anglian Chambers are sad to report the passing of Michael Lane on Friday 10 February.  Before retirement, Michael was a long standing member of Chambers who contributed to the running of chambers by his service on the management committee.  Michael was both liked and respected by his colleagues.  We send our condolences to his partner Joan with whom he shared many years of his life.

A message from Joan:

Following a private woodland burial in West Mersea for immediate family only, a memorial service for Michael will be held on Sunday 5th March in the Moot Hall, Colchester Town Hall at 12 noon.   This will be followed by a wake with a buffet in the same room.  Both the memorial service and wake are entirely open, and it would be very good to see you; however if you are likely to stay for the wake it would be a great help for catering purposes if you could please let me know.

No flowers please. Donations may be made in Michael’s memory to the Essex Wildlife Trust, to Oxfam, or to Friends of the Earth.




Chambers has made a donation to each of the charities.
