A memorial service for Dad’s Army star Frank Williams is set to take place two years after his death.

The actor was best known for his role as the Reverend Timothy Farthing in the BBC sitcom.

Born in Edgware in 1931, the star started his acting career at the Watford Palace Theatre, which was run by Jimmy Perry – who created Dad’s Army.

Prior to that he was educated at Ardingly College, West Sussex, and Hendon School.

Williams died aged 90 in June 2022, and a memorial service for June 30 this year has now been organised to mark two years since his death.

The event will take place at John Keble Church in Deans Lane at 3pm.

An invitation from the church said: “The service coincides with the second anniversary of Frank's death and we thought it would be nice for us all to come together to remember a dear friend and wonderful person, who brought such enjoyment to so many people throughout his life.”

Williams, appeared in Dad’s Army for nearly a decade, reprised his role as the vicar of Walmington-on-Sea in the 2016 film, which also starred Bill Nighy and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Those wishing to attend the service should RSVP to Terry Hunt - teliris@aol.com
