Death in Service: Mr Justice Henry James Carr

It is with great sadness, that the death in service is announced of Sir Henry Carr. Sir Henry was appointed to the High Court Bench, assigned to the Chancery Division, in 2015 after a distinguished career at the Bar. He took Silk in 1998 and was elected a Bencher in 2005. He was appointed as a  Deputy High Court Judge in 2007 before becoming a High Court Judge to the Chancery Division in 2015.

On behalf of the entire Judiciary, the Lord Chief Justice wishes to record his admiration for Sir Henry’s outstanding contribution to the administration of justice, which has been so tragically cut short.
