Alison Jane Graham Bell

Consultant physician in care of the elderly Royal Surrey County Hospital, Guildford (b 1963; q St Bartholomew's 1987; MRCP, MA), died as the result of an accident after falling from a roof she was repairing on 12 August 1999. Alison was a quiet, gentle person with a keen sense of humour. Her natural empathy underpinned her commitment to be approachable in her contact with patients and relatives, and she was looking forward to developing several aspects of the service. Having been captain of hockey at medical school, she maintained her sporting interests, regularly playing hockey and tennis. Alison treasured her family life and frequently spent holidays keeping up with the more far flung members of her family. She also adored the remote family cottage near Fishguard, and it was at this remote location that she died. She leaves her mother and four siblings.

Antony Robert Phillips Ellis

Former physician Huntingdon County Hospital (b Ormiston, Scotland, 1914; q Cambridge/St Barthlomew's 1941; DSO), died after a prolonged illness on 27 August 1999. Tony was the epitome of an English gentleman, but he was a shy man and few of his friends knew of his war record. He was awarded the DSO twice, and for a doctor this could have been given only for the utmost gallantry. He was a born pessimist but very talented, particularly on the stage, where his lost his inhibitions. He was also a talented artist and skilled at do it yourself. Tony also ran the family farm while working at Huntingdon for over 30 years. He did not wear his religion on his sleeve, but the church and his faith were deeply ingrained in him. He leaves a wife, Ilse; a stepdaughter; and two step grandchildren.
