This site is dedicated to the memory of Xinyi Lu.
Xinyi Lu was born in Nanjing, China on November 12, 1984. He passed away on October 03, 2011 on his holidays in China.
Xinyi was 26 years old. He came to the UK as a child and assimilated fully into British society. He attended grammar school in Buckinghamshire and went on to study at the University of Southampton in Audiology. Upon graduation, he went to work for the NHS at several hospitals in London, most recently at the Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead, where he was employed until the time of his death.
Thanks for visiting Xinyi online memorial.

It is with regret that we have to report the very tragic death of Xinyi Lu at the age of 26.
He was not just a Go player, but also an organiser and promoter of the game, being a BGA Council member from 2007 to 2010.
Xinyi died in an accident, while on holiday in China, at the beginning of October. His parents have created a website in his memory, some of you may wish to add your condolences there: https://sites.google....
Jonathan Turner, the President CLGC
(Central London GO Club)has set up a tribute to Xinyi on CLGC website's home page:
12th November 1984 to 03rd October 2011
Dear fellow go players,
It is with great sadness that I have to announce the recent death of our keen CLGC go player and my associate CLGC committee member Xinyi Lu at the untimely age of 26.
He died under tragic circumstances at a national park whilst enjoying a holiday in China. This comes as a great shock to us all and I trust that your thoughts will be with his family as they try to come to terms with this dreadful and unnecessary loss.
Xinyi was a gentle, modest, thoughtful, caring and kind person who devoted a lot of his time to promoting go in the UK. He was a stalwart member of both the British Go Association and Central London Go Club committees and worked tirelessly to raise awareness of tournaments and improve the go scene.
Xinyi was a good go player, providing a stern challenge and making steady progress towards dan level. He worked as a senior audiologist in the Royal Free Hospital, likewise making steady career progress. The British go community has lost a great ambassador and British medicine a great medic, but most importantly his family have lost someone they can be very proud of. He will be sorely missed by myself, CLGC, the go community and everyone else whose lives he touched.

This Saturday, 12th November would have been Xinyi's 27th birthday. As a fitting tribute, I hope all those that knew him and miss him will, if at all possible, attend the club this Saturday and play a few games in honour of his memory.
The local authority finally took responsibility and the dangerous spot in the national park has been closed to public.
Xinyi's parent would thank everyone for supporting their campaign in search of justice and to raise awareness for safety standards in Chinese public places.
Xinyi will be sorely missed by everyone whose lives he touched.
我在多年前见过欣义一次，他和几个英国朋友趁暑假到中国游玩，其中一站就是重庆。他在我们实验室呆了几天，安安静静，从不打搅别人，彬彬有礼。王老师告 诉我他们几个在中国坚持不坐飞机，而是坐那种最便宜的绿皮子火车，为的就是最深入的体验中国的生活。这让我们很佩服，因为当时是夏天，那种绿皮子火车没有 空调，特别挤，气味特别难闻，我们好多同学都怕坐那种车，他们几个从英国来的小伙子居然一点都不叫苦，着实出乎我们意料。我觉得他确实有许多和国内青年不 一样的地方，没有那种做作和娇气吧。
