Liveryman Terry Fillary MBE FCIPHE RP
It is with great sadness we have to announce the death of Liveryman Terry Fillary. He suffered a heart attack and passed away on the morning of Tuesday 23 February 2021. Terry will be remembered for his outstanding lead crafting skills, for which he was awarded the MBE in the 2014 New Year’s Honours List. We have lost another legend of the Livery. Our thoughts and condolences go to his widow Betty and all the family.
Terry Fillary was a member of the livery for 39 years. A registered plumber and Fellow of the CIPHE, his great love and exceptional skill was the craft of lead casting. He cast numerous items throughout his life, but is best remembered for two royal presentations.
In the main picture Terry can be seen with Her Majesty The Queen at Sandringham in January 2013 at the presentation of the Lead Planter he designed and cast on behalf of the Company to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee.
Following the presentation of the planter, Terry presented Her Majesty with a copy of his book covering all the projects with which he had been involved.
Terry’s previous Royal project had been the design and casting of two lead planters to celebrate Her Majesty’s Golden Jubilee and which now reside in the Rose Garden at Buckingham Palace.
Terry’s funeral, which sadly will be subject to the current lockdown restrictions, will be held at Upminster Crematorium at 2:40pm on 7 April 2021.
