YACR 1914 Annual Report, vol39 p180.
Died April 30th, 1914, aged 43 years.
Mr. Green's ringing career commenced at Ramnoor, Sheffield,
under the tuition of the veteran Mr. F. Allen. Joining the Association
in 1896, Mr. Green rang three peals before his departure from
Sheffield, two years or so later caused him to lose touch with active
ringing for a while. During his connection with the Ranmoor branch, he
was a valuable adjunct to the local company of handbell ringers, who,
both in change ringing and tunes, were making good progress.
When the bells were installed at Eastwood, Rotherham, in 1910,
Mr. Green, who had come to reside in the town, joined the new band then
being inaugurated, and revived his connection with the ssociation. His
health began to fail however, and this prevented him attending as
regularly as he would have liked, and although he only managed to ring
one more peal, he was as regular in his attendance for Sunday ringing
as his health would permit.
Of a quiet, good natured disposition, he had the respect of all his fellow-ringers.
On the day of the funeral, the handbells were rung over his
grave by ringers from the towers of St. Stephen’s and All
Saints’, and in the evening the muffled bells of St. Stephen's rang out
a last farewell.
