A Regent’s Park vicar has paid tribute to a parishioner whose body was found in her flat as much as a month after her death.
Revd William Gulliford, of St Mark’s Church in Regent’s Park Road, said Diana Parry-Richards was a “very nice” person who “didn’t go out of her way to be known.” Ms Parry-Richards had been involved with flower arranging for some years.
Revd Gulliford said: “Some people kept out of flower arranging and the rota, but she was quite keen to be involved. She would bring the flowers in, and the others would arrange them ahead of big festivals.”
Police and the London Ambulance Service broke down Ms Parry-Richards’ flat door on January 29 shortly after 9.30pm after neighbours raised the alarm, concerned for her welfare.
She had lived in Regent’s Park Road for about three decades.
