History - Arthur Troop Memorial Plaque


At a dedication service on Sunday 27th July, Marjorie Troop unveiled a Memorial Plaque in honour of her husband Arthur at Christ Church, Stamford in Lincolnshire.   

Together with family members and local parishioners, IPA members representing local branches, the Midlands and East Anglia attended the service. Alan Carter, former International Secretary General and a close friend of the Troop family, read the lesson.  The Bishop of Grantham said prayers of dedication and the Reverend Bob Mackrill paid tribute to Arthur’s vision in Founding the IPA; his establishing a Blind and Deaf Club in the local community; and his faith and energy put into the local parish.   

The Memorial Plaque, commemorating and celebrating the life of Arthur Troop, can now be seen by all visitors to the church.    It was designed and created by John Shaw and funded by Christchurch parishioners and the IPA (British Section and International Body).   

The occasion was a dual commemoration - Arthur and Marjorie’s daughter Susan and husband Luciano also celebrated their 25th Wedding Anniversary.
