David Croft

David Croft was a generous donor to the Westminster Abbey restoration appeal which culminated in the cleaning of Henry VII's Lady chapel in 1995. Several decorated enamelled copper plaques, designed by Donald Buttress and painted by Kenneth Breese in 1999, record donors names by the side of the steps to this chapel. That to Mr Croft, of A.W. Europe Ltd, reads:

David Croft "A Yorkshireman" 1938-1992

The Shrine of St Edward the Confessor is one of the most powerful features of the Abbey. To stand in the presence of a man who is both a saint and a monarch is awe-inspiring.
