Tufty-haired man who gives Dumbledore’s eulogy

The Harry Potter Canon

A “little tufty-haired man” wearing black robes spoke at Dumbledore’s funeral, giving a eulogy. From what Harry can hear — phrases like “nobility of spirit” — it was a speech praising the life of the Headmaster(HBP30). In the midst of these high-sounding words, Harry remembered Dumbledore’s idea of a few words: “Nitwit, oddment, blubber, and tweak” (PS7).

The same man, apparently a member of the wizarding clergy, officiated at Bill and Fleur’s wedding (DH8).

    Should this entry also include the fact that the same man officiated Bill and Fleur’s wedding?

    • Yes it should! This is apparently one of the entries that isn’t finished. We’ll get on it. Thanks for catching it.
