Published: 29 June 2017

It is with great regret that the City Council confirms the sudden death of Lichfield’s Town Clerk, Christopher Moulton, at the age of 53. In a joint statement the City Council’s staff said;

“Christopher was an excellent Town Clerk, the heart of the City Council and a deeply respected, liked and admired man. He had a warm, patient and approachable manner, an enviable depth of knowledge and a sharp and often very insightful sense of humour.  His style of leadership made the City Council a very close knit family, and we continue the necessary day to day duties of the Council in his name and in his honour. He is irreplaceable, and we will miss him terribly.”

The Mayor of Lichfield, Councillor Janice Greaves stated

"In the short time I have worked closely with Christopher in my role as Mayor, I quickly came to respect him.  He was enthusiastic, approachable and always helpful.  I will miss his presence in Lichfield". 

David Smedley, Leader of the City Council added;

“It has been a terrible shock for everyone. Christopher loved our City and was a pleasure to work with; sensible, pragmatic and dedicated to his role as Town Clerk. He was a good, kind man who I am proud to have known and worked alongside. Since becoming Town Clerk in 2015 Christopher’s impact on the City Council cannot be overstated. I, on behalf of all the City Councillors, send our condolences, prayers and best wishes to his family and friends at this tragic time.”

Christopher began working for the City Council in February 2008, initially as Deputy Town Clerk, and became Town Clerk in 2015.

A book of condolence has been opened at the City Council’s offices at Donegal House, Bore St, Lichfield.
