Edmund Cordeaux, Winteringham


In loving memory
Edmund Dodson
Mayor of Winteringham
for forty years
who died April 4th 1917
aged 102 years
"The hoary head is a crown
of glory if it be found in
the way of righteousness."
Prov. XVI. v.31


Edmund Cordeaux, Winteringham

Editor’s note: According to the Office of National Statistics, there were 100 centenarians in the 1911 census, and this figure grew by only 100 or so between 1911 and 1939.  Women centenarians outnumbered their male counterparts by about 3:1.  So when Edmund attained the age of 100, it is likely that he was one of only about 25 men in the whole of the UK to reach that age, and by surviving to pass his 102nd birthday, the number of centenarians would be far smaller. Indeed, it is quite feasible that Edmund would be one of the oldest, if not THE oldest man in the whole country!
