In 1980 Dr Lloyd-Jones’ health had already begun to deteriorate but he continued to preach as and when he was able.
By late February 1981 he was very unwell but he was able to write a note saying, Do not pray for healing. Do not hold me back from the glory. He passed away on March 1.
He was buried in Newcastle Emlyn, West Wales and a service of Thanksgiving was held in Westminster Chapel on April 6.
