Thanks for sending me the Trinity 2017 edition, full of interest as usual. But an error needs correcting.

Sir Geoffrey Hill died on 30 June 2016, not the following day. As the obituarist is a DNB research editor, I think it’s important to be pedantic so that the error doesn’t live on and perhaps become enshrined in the DNB in due course. To be fair, some other obituaries made the same mistake. Perhaps you could let Dr May know. I’m sure he’ll want his fine piece to be correct in this particular.
