It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Zachary Cox on 19th August 2019. Zach, a much loved and revered member of the Pagan Community, died peacefully after a massive stroke. As High Priest of the Bricket Wood Coven for over 50 years, and in partnership with his beloved Jean, Zach was a pivotal figure within Wicca. Outside of the coven, Zach and Jean had been active members of the Pagan Federation since 1988 and co-founded the Companions of the Rainbow Bridge - a ritualistic magical group - in 1977. They also held regular Gnostic Masses in their North London home.

Learned and erudite, Zach was a very private person who did not suffer fools gladly and had little time for pointless small talk - but he was also warm, kind, and charming, with an earthy sense of humour. Zach was without a doubt one of the most knowledgeable people in the Craft, who had lived and played an active role throughout most of its formative years. His passing is a huge loss to the whole community. He leaves his daughters Marilyn and Julie, and sons John and Adam - and Ruth Bayer, who had been a surrogate daughter to him and had taken care of Zach (with the help of her husband David) since Jean's passing. The Bricket Wood Coven continues and flourishes today and is a living memorial to the values and magic of Zach and Jean and the Gardnerian tradition which they so faithfully upheld.

We will be announcing funeral arrangements within a few days; in the meantime condolences may be sent to the bereaved via zachcondolences::at::gmail.com

Blessed Be,
Marilyn and Ruth
