It is with great sadness we record the untimely passing of Jeremy Hardy, who died on 1 February.

The tributes to his comic genius have been widespread, and we provide links to a number of these below. Jeremy was in the final Grammar School intake of September 1972, leaving the fully formed Sixth Form College in the summer of 1979. Jeremy went on to study at Southampton University, before embarking on his career as a comedian.

Many of us will remember his mischievous sense of fun at Farnham College, and Blunderbuss records his many appearances in theatrical productions. Some of us remember him as a waiter at the 1978 Leavers Dinner.

You can read obituaries on the BBC Website, the Daily Mail, the Evening Standard, the Farnham Herald, the Guardian, Hello!, the Independent, the Irish Examiner, the Manchester Evening News, the Metro, the Mirror, the Radio Times, and the Sun.
