Janet Newman told me:-
"He died in 1936. I remember my grandmother, Ada, telling me that for some reason - I can’t remember why – she had to give permission for his leg to be amputated. I think he may have had thrombosis. She felt absolutely dreadful putting him through that because, not too long after, he died of throat cancer."
