Religious Services
GB 2014 WS-02-ABY · Series · 1878-Present
Part of Westminster School's Archive and Collections

This collection contains a variety of material relating to the School’s religious services, primarily focused on Westminster Abbey. There are orders of service from the annual School services held at the Abbey, as well as further material from Abbey events that were often attended by the School, although did not feature it in any prominent way. Finally there is a subsection for Funerals and Memorials, containing orders of service for people related to the School or the Abbey. Many, but not all, of these services were held in Westminster Abbey.

Material generated through the School's events in or relationship with the Abbey, including annual services, weekly Abbey talks, and one-off events.

Westminster Abbey documents relating to the biannual Commemoration of Benefactors and the annual Election service are held in the EVE series, under their respective events.

Abbey Events
GB 2014 WS-02-ABY-02 · Subseries · 2002-2014
Part of Westminster School's Archive and Collections

This series contains material held by the school on events at Westminster Abbey which do not feature the school in any prominent fashion, although representatives from the School often attended and this is how such material came to be in the Westminster School collections.
A more extensive Westminster Abbey collective is held at the Abbey itself: https://www.westminster-abbey.org/about-the-abbey/library-research

Royal Events
GB 2014 WS-02-ABY-02-01 · Series · 1902-2007
Part of Westminster School's Archive and Collections

This series contains items concerning events held in Westminster Abbey which directly concern the Royal Family, such as Coronations, Weddings and Funerals, as well as a small number of additional events such as coronation and wedding anniversaries. Not all events attended by the Royal Family are held in this series and such events where a representative of the Royal Family was present but the event had a different primary focus are held elsewhere in the Westminster Abbey collection, as best suits their primary theme.

Part of Westminster School's Archive and Collections

This collection contains orders of service for funerals and memorial services for Old Westminsters, former Westminster school teachers, former Head Masters, and a small number of other individuals. The majority of the services took place in Westminster Abbey, but orders of service have been included in this collection where the service happened elsewhere as the individuals have associations to Westminster School.
