Margot Lawrence: religious journalist

Campaigning religious journalist Margot Lawrence, who spent much of her career fighting for the retention of the Book of Common Prayer amid proposals in the Anglican General Synod to outlaw it, has died aged 88.

In 1982 she became honorary secretary of the Prayer Book Society and served the post for 10 years.

Lawrence also enjoyed a freelance career spanning a variety of national publications including The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph, Good Housekeeping, Housewife and Nursery World.

Her work included contributions to The Oxford Book of the English Language, biographies such as that of Elsie Inglis, a woman doctor in Serbia, and a historical account of Samoa.
