John Roberts

2nd April 1939 - 18th May 2018


John Roberts as he will best be remembered.

John Roberts was born in Salford on April 2, 1939. When John was only seven years old, his father died – partly from the effects of being gassed while fighting with the 2nd 6th Manchester regiment in the First World War.

This brought about a dramatic change in the family’s circumstances and led to his being offered a place at the Royal Masonic School for Boys in Bushey, Hertfordshire, a charitable boarding school for the sons of deceased Freemasons, which he was to attend until he turned 18.
