‘Justice for George Bell’ Petition
Bishop George Bell was one of the great leaders of the Church of England in the twentieth century. As a member of the House of Lords, on moral grounds he bravely opposed the blanket bombing of German cities in WW2.
Two major reports in 2017 and 2019 established that allegations of abuse made against Bishop Bell sixty years after his death were unfounded.
We request that the name of 4 Canon Lane in Chichester Cathedral grounds should once more celebrate the memory of this great Bishop and be known again as George Bell House.
