Past Master Charles Smith RP

It is with great sadness that we have to advise of the death of Past Master Charles Smith on 29th December. He had a fall on 13th December and fractured his hip, followed by replacement surgery, but did not have the strength to recover. Charles, supported by his wife Beryl, made a huge contribution to the Company; he would have been a Liveryman for 50 years in 2021 and was Master in 1996/97. Our thoughts and condolences are with Beryl, son and Liveryman Colin, and all the family.
