My first cousin Robert, the eldest of the grandchildren of George Leslie Wates and Lucy Winifred Wates (nee Ainsworth), sadly died recently two and a half years after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer having shown remarkable resilience and courage over this period. Here is the address given by his brother Martin, after consultation with his other brothers, at his funeral at East Sutton Church on the 4th May.
Robert was a barrister specialising in tax and here is a tribute, also given at the funeral, by Robert Venables QC, a member of his chambers and a leading tax lawyer
