Additionally Memorial Service, St Martin in the Fields, 1984 service order laid in. Stringer who worked at the old Fulham Pottery in the 1950s subsequently moved to nearby Taggs Yard in Barnes, south-west London.

Stringer experimented with his own glazes and firing techniques, and wrote a book on Raku, becoming a Fellow of the Craft Potters Association, editing the association's journal for a time and exhibiting widely as well as lecturing at home and abroad.
