Hugh Denis Charles FitzRoy, the 11th Duke of Grafton, who died aged 92 on 7 April, devoted most of his working life to saving the architectural heritage of Britain.

“An eloquent champion of conservation, he lectured all over the world and sat on a breathtaking array of architectural and amenity bodies. He was chairman and later president of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings, and also chaired at various times the Historic Churches Preservation Trust, the Architectural Heritage Fund, the Church of England’s Cathedral Advisory Commission and Sir John Soane’s Museum.”
