The Old One Hundredth*

As an antithesis to the series ‘They died too young’, there are several former pupils who have reached their Hundredth birthday. This series of posts celebrates their lives. There are not quite as many of them as those that died too young but there’s more to write about them so they have been grouped.

It should also be pointed out that the numbers of those who got more than halfway through their ninth decade are considerable – 41 to be precise with 4 not quite tiptoeing into their centenary. And that’s just the pre-1914 pupils!

*The title refers to the hymn based on Psalm 100 with the lyrics ‘All people that on earth do dwell’. This hymn was often sung at School and at allied Masonic events.

One thought on “The Old One Hundredth*

  1. Catching up with emails – so sorry not to have read these last term, it was manic.

    This one isn’t on your webpage either as the link is going to a pdf file. I have to say that this is more cheerful than the youngsters passing away. I like the extremes.

    Take care
