It’s P.G. Wodehouse’s birthday, and his fans have even more reason to celebrate: Westminster Abbey is adding a memorial to him.

An abbey spokesperson told The Guardian that there isn’t an exact location for the memorial stone yet, as plans are still in a very early stage.

No matter what, Wodehouse will be in good company there; more than a hundred poets and writers — including Jane Austen and C.S. Lewis — are buried or have memorials in the Poets’ Corner.

Wodehouse, who wrote nearly a hundred books, is probably best known for creating the characters Jeeves and Wooster.

He has previously been honored in another classic British way: by being knighted in 1975, shortly before his death.
