Eulogy for Robin Gurnett
Rob was always one for a good
funeral, weekly checking the local

newspaper for people he knew who
had passed away (not sure if it was
because he would get invited back
for the food after).

A very generous Man, when my wife and I needed
to move to a small village some 24 years ago
without a second thought he said for us to come and
move next to him at Rosemary Cottages after his
Mother Clara died.

Rob and I have been best friends for 43 years, with
our combined interest in antiques, in fact we met at
an auction and subsequently many adventures were

elected Honorary President of Friends of Blue

subject, always injecting a little humour in his talks.
He was of course involved in the local History

Robin Gurnett

Many people in the Village will have far more
recollections of Robin Gurnett than I have.
However as part of the History Society and with a
typographic background working with Robin on
some of his publications had generated a close
friendship. His interests extended beyond his
specialist ceramic knowledge and conversations
on work, travel, writings and lectures offered a
more comprehensive picture of his background in
spite of the limited time I knew him. A great
many of his ideas and publications will now not
be finished but as a tribute to him it is anticipated
that the booklet on the Prisoner of War Camp can
be completed. It is a sad loss to the Village and
History Society and indeed on a personal note to
me.

Institute War Memorial New classes starting
January 2013 in
Many may not know that, in addition to the War
Memorial on the Heath, there is another Memorial Bishop’s Stortford and
Plaque located in the hall inside the Institute building. Hatfield Heath.
The inscription reads
“In grateful memory of the men who went from Contact:
Hatfield Heath to serve in the Great War 1914 – www.tinytalk.co.uk/christinap
1919”.
It lists 116 names and 29 of those who did not return. [email protected]
Many of the names are shared by people living in the TinyTalk Bishops Stortford
village today. If you wish to see it, the Institute is TinyTalk Hatfield Heath
normally open on weekdays from 10 to 12 for the
Coffee Mornings. Former Deputy Headteacher
At the time the plaque was erected, the Institute very effective at raising standards
would almost certainly have been in use as a Working
Mens’ Club. The plaque was refurbished some years Reading techniques coached; books loaned
ago by the Village Hall Trust, and we have now Clearly taught NC maths
added it to the online War Memorials website
recently set up by English Heritage. Quality of writing and handwriting improved
SATs, 11+ and Common Entrance
Peter Lines Dyslexia
Weekly follow-up activities
The fighting finished with the Armistace in November
1918, but the war didn’t end officially until the Treaty 01279 600 102
of Versaille in 1919. So legally, we were actually at
war until 1919 – all memorials should really say this Denise Ings
