Arthur Henry Young

2nd of October 2001

13 March 1908 – 2 May 2001
Arthur Young passed away peacefully at Felden Croft Nursing Home on 2 May aged 93 years.
Originally from Tonbridge Wells, Kent, Arthur and his wife Florrie lived in Chipperfield for many years and loved the village. They were married for 58 years. Florrie died at home in July 1993, having been lovingly cared for by Arthur through a long illness. Arthur lived at Honeywood, The Common until early 1997 when he moved to Felden Croft.
Arthur was a keen golfer and played at West Herts into his eighties. As a teenager he was offered a trial by Manchester United but on the advice of his mother learned a trade instead. As a result Arthur became a highly skilled carpenter before working his way to the position of General Manager with Rush & Tomkins.
Both Arthur and Florrie were keen gardeners and the small garden at Honeywood was a delight. They participated in the popular open garden days alongside the Swan House, Burford House and Mahogany Hall. They also loved to support Chipperfield Cricket Club and could be seen regularly watching the game from their favourite spot, accompanied by their little dog Penny.
Florries “end-of-season presentation nights” were a highlight of each year and not to be forgotten by those present. The trophies were often prized carvings of birds, the result of many hours work by Arthur. He was very talented at carving and exhibited at several local shows.
A service was held for Arthur at West Herts Crematorium on 14 May and his ashes will be placed in Florries grave in St. Pauls churchyard. He will be remembered with great
affection by all who knew him. Shirley Hoy
