‘Ken was one of those under-stated men, rare in politics, who had little time for vanity or ego but gave himself quietly to his causes. He never faltered in his deep conviction that every life is precious, from conception until natural death; stood four square with the down trodden; and combined patriotism and a love of his Lancashire roots – most notably Hyndburn, Accrington and Oswaldtwistle – with a deep and simple Catholic faith.
Whether he was serving Mass, as he did for 60 years; working with the St. Vincent de Paul Society or charities and organisations of which he was a member – from the Epiphany Trust and Movement for Christian Democracy or Right To Life – Ken Hargreaves set a fine example of dedicated public service. May he rest in peace.’
