It is with great sadness that we report the death of long time Henbury resident Roger Cresswell, who passed away on May 28th after a short illness. Many in the village knew Roger.
He was born on 9th April 1936 and educated at Manchester Grammar School, after which he went up to Cambridge University to read mathematics.
After university he qualified as an accountant, joined ICI the fore-runner of Astra Zeneca, and became one of the new breed of computerised accountants.
Roger moved to Henbury in 1969 where he joined in village life and was always willing to help at any event.
He was a member of Probus and was the Treasurer for some time.
In addition he was the Treasurer for St. Thomas' Church Henbury for 17 years.
A gentle unassuming man who will be sadly missed.
