Tetlow, Charles (Morrison, 1967)
Sophie Clayton

07/08/1949 - 09/07/2021

Arrived at Giggleswick School in the Spring term 1963

Lived in Harrogate and his father worked as a Dental Consultant in Leeds

He was a member of Paley House and a lively pupil, joining the CCF Band and excelling in Boxing. He enjoyed Rugby and other sports.  Warwick Brookes was Housemaster at the time and Mr P Wickstead was House Tutor. It was the era of Radio Caroline, Stidgers, Swoggers, Blue Papers, Punishment Schools, High Rigg (30mins), Triangle (15mins), Long Cross Streets and of course The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. It was also the era of the cane and “prefect bullies” but it did none of us any harm.

Charles joined Allied Dunbar as a financial advisor in the 1980’s and he and Janet lived in Bromley, Kent. He served for a time as a Territorial soldier in The Honourable Artillery Company (HAC) whilst working in the city. The HAC is the 2nd oldest Military Corps in the world and recruits almost exclusively from within the City of London financial services sector. He was a regular attendee at the OG London Dinners. We both remember some excellent evenings in the House of Commons. He also attended many OG days at school often on a lovely sunny day and in his earlier days would invite his 80-year-old mother together with his wife Janet, his constant companion and best friend. They moved to Knutsford, Cheshire in 1983 and to their present home in Horncastle, Lincolnshire in 2007.

Charles was initiated into the Old Giggleswickian Lodge No 8263 on 12th May 1998 and he became Worshipful Master in 2007. The Lodge meets four times a year in Settle and occasionally at the school. He was instrumental in proposing Chris Bean (59-63), Jim Nicol (62-65) and Andrew McNaughton (63-66) into the Lodge.

He will be greatly missed by all who knew him

Andrew McNaughton and Jim Nicol
