It is with a great degree of sadness that I advise you of the death of our esteemed Antarctic colleague and friend, Fred Elliott.
After a period of time in hospital he returned to Melville Grange and into palliative care.

This afternoon Fred died in the presence of his family; his daughter Kirstie told me that he regained conciousness and momentarily recognised her and then died peacefully.
As soon as the funeral arrangements have been attended too, Kirtsie will let me know I will advise you the details by email.

R.I.P Fredrick (Fred) Winston Elliott      b. 29/12/1928  d. 10/09/2018

Our thoughts are now with his family, his daughters Penny and Kirstie, and his dear friend and companion Robin Allison.
