Funeral of Dr Edgar Mann

The funeral of one of the key figures of Manx politics will be held this morning (Thurs)

Dr Edgar Mann was chairman of the Executive Council – the forerunner to the Council of Ministers - and Education Minister during a political career which spanned more than 20 years.

He passed away last month at the age of 86, leaving a wife Joan, seven children and 16 grandchildren.

He was recently described by House of Keys Speaker Steve Rodan as a family man with a keen interest in all aspects of Island life.

The funeral service will be held at Lonan Parish Church at 11 o’clock.
