Douglas Adams Memorial Service

Douglas Adams' memorial service was held in St. Martin in the Fields Church, Trafalgar Square on September 17th, 2001.

The service was webcast from the Church to enable the internet community to celebrate the life of one of its pioneers. We were honoured that Douglas' family and friends allowed us to join them in commemorating Douglas, and in giving thanks for a brilliant writer, inspirational broadcaster, and generally wonderful bloke.

The speeches made in celebration of Douglas' life will soon be available in an area of the Hitchhiker's site devoted to tributes to Douglas.

You can pay tribute to Douglas on h2g2.
