The death has occurred at Bessacarr, Doncaster, and Mrs Charlotte Elizabeth Gledhill (71), wife of Mr Walter Gledhill, former headmaster of Conisbrough Northcliffe Modern School.

He retired from Conisbrough some eight years ago when Mr and Mrs Gledhill went to live in North Wales.

Mrs Gledhill had been ill for several months and in December came to stay with the youngest daughter at Bessacarr.

There are two sons and three daughters. The eldest son, Philip, has a farm in Wales.

The funeral took place on Saturday.
