Memorial Service To Be Held For Robin Esser

A memorial service in recognition of former Daily Mail executive managing editor Robin Esser’s contribution to journalism over a 60-year career on Fleet Street is to be held next week.

Organised by the Society of Editors, the service will be held at St Bride’s Fleet at 11.30am next Wednesday (21 March) followed by a reception at St Bride’s Institute.

During his career, Robin served as editor of the Sunday Express, executive managing editor of the Daily Mail, and as president of the Society of Editors.  

In 2015, Robin’s memoires ‘Crusaders in Chains’ were published, in which he vividly recounted his Fleet Street career.

Contributions towards the cost of the memorial service and reception can be made to the Society of Editors.
