How did Mary Berry’s son William die?
Mary Berry’s son William tragically died in a car accident while home from University in 1989 aged just 19.
She was informed of her son’s death when a policeman rang the doorbell while she was waiting for him and his sister Annabel to return home for lunch.
In his final days, the family spent Friday evening together over a lamb meal Mary had made for William’s return from Bristol Polytechnic where he was studying business studies.
On the Saturday morning, he asked to borrow the car, but just hours later he died in a fatal accident.
