  • One of the real unsung heroes of the legal profession - worth a hundred prima-donna lawyers, most of whom can's spell proerly anyway

  • An (unintentionally) brilliant post from petroboy - just goes to show why people like Reg are so necessary to the legal profession.

  • A great guy, who lived round the corner from me in Richmond. We'll really miss him- I'm just glad that he was celebrated by the legal press and the BBC last year http://news.bbc.co.uk/local/london/hi/people_and_places/newsid_8611000/8611571.stm
    Locally, he sang in the church choir for over 80 years and at all my childrens christenings.
    He had more of a twinkle in his eye, energy, and intellectual curiosity that many half- or a quarter- of his age. I'll miss him..

  • I knew him for almost 20 years. He was something of a legend in the Parish of Richmond with a remarkable record of over 80 years service in the choir! His cheeky smile, witty banter and boundless knowledge of various British Victorian and Edwardian composers and hymn writers will be much missed. Rest in peace and rise in glory old friend.

  • I first went to work at Taylor Wessing 10 years ago. My desk was right behind Reg's. I used to make him cups of tea and chat to him daily. I loved to listen to his stories and he used to advise and encourage me with my stories and life. Even though I moved departments Reg always remembered where we were on our last conversation. I left Tw last year and recently got offered a job back near to Reg. Was looking forward to catch up but sadly I learned of his death today. Will never forget you Reg will miss you may you rest in peace

  • I also met Reg when I worked at Taylor Wessing. We became good friends and Reg used to love our daily catch up. We kept in touch when I left Taylor Wessing and often went on day trips on the paddlesteamer "Waverley" which he enjoyed. Reg loved hearing my results from the ballroom dancing competitions that I entered. Andy and I will miss you very much Reg. Sweet dreams. xx
