Members will learn with regret of the death of John A. Cox on 18 January 2016. Mr Cox was first elected a Member of the Baltic Exchange in 1956 representing Albion & Overseas Shipping Agency. Between 1960 and 1965 he was a member for Eggar Forrester and then went on to represent Clarksons from 1965 onwards until becoming a retired member in 1990.
There will be a family only cremation on 3 February, followed by a remembrance service at 1230 where all are welcome to celebrate his life.
For anyone wishing to attend the remembrance service, the details are as follows:-
Wednesday 3 February at 1230:
All Saints Church
A continuation of the celebration will be held at John’s eldest daughter’s house after the service.
Several people will be wearing bow ties in honour of his city dress sense, but this is by no means compulsory.
The family have asked for no flowers but a donation to The Royal Marsden Hospital can be made in John Cox’s name.
