Entered Guy's Hospital in 1877, where he became House Surgeon. He settled in practice at Norwich, and acted as Surgeon to the Dispensary, to the Eye Infirmary, and to the Jenny Lind Infirmary for Children, practising at 10 Surrey Street. He was keenly and actively engaged in surgery, as is shown by the titles. of his published papers, which concerned "Ruptured Gastric Ulcer treated by Laparotomy", "Gastro-enterostomy for Cancer of the Pylorus " (Brit Med Jour, 1886, i, 488), "Gastroplasty and Pyloroplasty", "Four Cases of Labour obstructed by Pelvic Tumour", "Two Cases of Intracranial Section of the 2nd and 4th Divisions of the Trigeminal Nerve". Unfortunately in 1911 an attack of influenza was followed by myelitis and complete paralysis of both legs. During the War he lost three sons; nevertheless he maintained fortitude and cheerfulness, an intense interest in medical matters and his hospitals for the ten years until his death at 3 Gladstone Road, Deal, on Sept 7th, 1921.
