William Morris Schumm West (1983) To be a pilgrim: a memoir of Ernest A. Payne. Lutterworth Press, Guildford
Ernest Alexander Payne died on 14 January 1980, at the age of 77. Within a matter of hours the Dean of Westminster was asking whether a Service of Thanksgiving for his life could be held in the Abbey. Such a request is a tribute enough in itself to the kind of man he was and the way other people saw him.
In To be a Pilgrim Morris West takes us through those 77 years, and helps us to understand what it was about the man that made so many want to pay tribute to him.
