Ray Edwards This Is Cornwall:

A man who devoted many years of his life to the study of the Cornish language and was keen to give others the opportunity to learn the ancient idiom wherever they were in the world has received glowing tributes from his many supporters.

Ray Edwards, who died at his home in Sutton Coldfield last month, was the founder of the Kernewek dre Lyther (Cornish by Letter) teaching method.

Born in 1924, he published several books on the subject, studied ancient texts, undertook huge translation projects and gently led and encouraged hundreds of students through their grades.
