  • We are very grateful to Peter Webb, son of Mr FK (Ken) Webb Science 1948-56, has provided a full obituary for his father, who died aged 77 in 1991. He has provided a photo of FKW at a Speech Day. Can anyone identify who is with him? - see In Memoriam
  • Ruth Schofield (née Palmby) writes: While researching family history I have discovered that my father Robert (Bob) Palmby was a pupil at Soham Grammar School in 1911. I am uncertain as to the date he started there. He was born in 1897 and joined the Royal Navy in 1915. I would be most interested to see if anything is held in the archives about my father's schooling, including anything about his guardianship as I believe, when not at school, he was living in the household of his grandmother Louisa Bunting - an address somewhere in Newmarket I think.

    Ruth has provided a photo which includes Bob among what she thinks may be other SG cricket and tennis players - is anyone from your family who may have been at SG not long before WW1 included? - see Scrapbook 1910-19
  • Andrew Makin writes: "Just to let you know that my mother Mrs Edith Makin (Betty) wife of the late John Makin passed away last Sunday 7th December." Our condolences were sent to Andrew and the family.

    Syd Cornwell has identified his father Desmond Cornwell on the 1935 School Photo: "My father, Desmond Cornwell, attended SGS from 1931 until 1936. He was born in Isleham in 1920 and lived in the village until 1936, when he left home to work for his uncle who operated a haulage business in Norfolk. My mother passed away in December of 2005, but Dad will celebrate his 89th birthday at the end of March next year and now spends much of his time reminiscing about childhood days. He often talks about his days at SGS."

October 2008

  • 26 Oct 2008: A message from Tabby's daughter, Jenny: I have been immensely touched by all the kind letters, cards and emails I’ve received from Soham Grammarians. I just can’t thank everyone individually, and I do hope they will understand that. A heartfelt, “thank you” to everyone who was kind enough to contact me, and to all who have sent donations for Marie Curie Cancer Care for the in-home nurses.

    Recollections are being recorded on Tabby's page. Your memories of him are welcome.

  • 8 Oct 2008, updated 12 Oct: message from Mrs Jenny Jeffery, daughter of Mr EH Tabraham to the editor: "I know you would wish me to let you know that my father died in his sleep in the early hours of this morning, 8th October. The phrase 'a merciful release' for him is truly apposite, though obviously for my children and me there is a huge sense of loss. The signed Best Wishes booklet from the Dinner arrived by this morning's post and he would have been very touched by some of the comments in it. When it comes to the funeral I might well see if at least some of the comments could be incorporated.

    He wanted a cremation. This will take place on Wednesday 22nd October at 11.20am, at Gorleston Crematorium in the grounds of Magdalen Cemetery, Oriel Avenue, Gorleston (Gorleston is midway between Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth).

    It would be lovely to have SGS represented. Although it's ten days away I really need to know approximate numbers attending because of sorting out post-service refreshments at one of the local hostelries in Loddon/Chedgrave. Soham Grammarians will of course be welcome to attend."

    Tabby would have been 97 on November 18th. Our condolences go to Jenny and her family.

    If you wish to write to her, and in particular to let her know if you plan to come to the funeral, please write to Mrs J Jeffery, 18 Hobart Road, Loddon, NORWICH, Norfolk NR14 6LD.

    "It will be family flowers only. Donations to Marie Curie Cancer Care are welcomed, they nurse cancer patients in their own homes rather than people having to spend the last period of their lives in hospital. Please send cheques payable to Marie Curie Cancer Care to the funeral directors: Cossey, Funeral Directors and Monumental Masons, 4 Exchange Square, Beccles, Suffolk NR34 9HL." Your donation can be Gift Aided if you attach a signed and dated statement that you are a UK taxpayer, with your full name and address.

    Recollections are being recorded on
    Tabby's page. Your memories of him are welcome.

September 2008

  • a message from the Armitage family, 11 Sep:

    We are sad to report that May Armitage passed away in the early hours of 9 September, having suffered a stroke a few days before. She slipped away peacefully, in her own home, having seen all three sons within the few days preceding and some of her grandchildren too. She knew what was happening and was able to communicate a little until she faded into unconsciousness.
    Rod was with her as well as her carers. Her medical attention over these few days was everything one could wish for and more. She was 94.

    The funeral will take place at
    St Mary's Church, Ely, at 2pm on Wednesday 24th September, followed by the cremation, with refreshments and sandwiches at the Fire Engine House for all who wish to join us.

    We prefer there to be family flowers only. Donations in aid of
    The Stroke Association may be offered at the service or via the undertakers, Ely Funeral Service, 4 Tower Road, ELY, CB7 4HW.

    Our condolences go to the family. Those who boarded, and those who were at school during May's time on the staff 1966-72, or came to know her in other ways will recall how she loved a good conversation and her vast memory of all things SGS. The editor invites recollections of May and especially any photos of her at school events. A page has been started for her, recording memories - see via In Memoriam

    As the family says "she was wonderful lady and will be sorely missed by so many."

    At the funeral May was well remembered in the tributes from her family and carers and it is hoped to add these to the website in due course.

  • Making contact:
    Vernon Fretwell
    50, Norfolk: I believe my family may hold some kind of SGS attendance record as follows - my two brothers Cedric A Fretwell 48 and Clifford M Fretwell 52 and I were all at the school at the same time, along with our cousin Eric G Fretwell 51. Any challenges to that?
    Neil Holmes 52 responds: Vernon Fretwell's family record of three brothers plus a cousin at the school at the same time will certainly be hard to beat. As I recalled a year or so ago, three Holmes brothers attended the School (Paul 46, Michael 49 and Neil 52), but the eldest had left before the youngest joined, and we can't even pull in the odd cousin. However, the Holmes brothers' record of continuous attendance, from 1946 to 1960, may well eclipse the Fretwells'.

    He adds: "my latest book is entitled The Lawless Coast. It is essentially historical narrative detailing the smuggling wars on the Norfolk coast in the 1780s. It is selling extremely well throughout Norfolk, especially the coastal region. I would imagine that Leon Kitchen, who fired my enthusiasm for history, would be amused." - see The Lawless Coast

  • The Dinner invitation letter sent to Cyril Joe Titmarsh 41 was returned 'gone away'. His son Jeffrey was traced and sadly Cyril died in December 2007. He served for many years in the Army. His name has been added to our In Memoriam page

  • Ian Hobbs 48: I had the privilege to captain both the Football and the Cricket OB teams in the last year of the School. We beat the School by a large margin; in the team were Ian Booth, Johnny Fretwell, Eric Simper .. does anyone have more details of the teams and the match?

    We also thrashed the School at cricket due mainly to a great bowling performance by Norman South. Ian Booth was in the side as was Brian Leonard. Once again does anyone have more details of the teams and the match? I do remember I elected to bat on after tea as we had not scored too quickly. A little frowned, on but my teaching from RAT was that "if you can't win, do not lose".

    I would appreciate if there was more info about these two historic games.

    Ian also adds a cricket anecdote to RAT's page - see In Memoriam > RAT

  • Nick Cave 60 has now fully retired after a career mainly with Cadbury's and Guinness, followed by working with an estate agency in Gascony.

I was 'asked to leave' Soham all those years ago and was a bit of a '60s rebel!". If you would like to be in touch with Nick please contact the editor.

April 2008

  • On March 13 a book launch took place in Belfast, for which some signed copies were flown in by four Tucano aircraft of No.72 Squadron RAF from Linton on Ouse. The book, by Guy Warner is Shorts - The Foreman Years. Philip Foreman came to Belfast in 1958 to work for Short & Harland Ltd on the Seacat missile system. In 1967 he was appointed Managing Director, a position he held for the next 21 years, combining it with the role of Chairman from 1983. These were great years for Shorts , the company became a world leader in the fields of commuter aircraft, missiles, aerostructures and advanced composite materials.

    This is the story of those exciting times and includes many personal memories from Sir Philip and others who worked with him. It is also profusely illustrated from the company archives. Philip Foreman entered SGS in 1934 - see more about him and the book via Pages by/on SGs

    He adds "Regarding School Lists it is my recollection that they were not produced every year whilst I was at school. I think there may have been ones for my first [we have that] and second years [we don't have that] at school but don't remember lists for the following years until I left in 1959 [we have none for the period 1955-60]. This, if my memory is correct, would of course explain why you have been unable to obtain copies!"
    If you can verify or modify Chris's recollection, please contact the editor.
