Obituary John Francis Clements (OI1950-59)

We regret to announce that John Clements who was at Ipswich School from 1950 to 1959 died with his family around him on April 1st, 2023 aged 79 years at St Elizabeth Hospice after a short illness. 

John was President of the Old Ipswichians in 2000 and was a Partner at Ensors Chartered Accountants.

He will be sadly missed by his family and friends.

We are conscious that some people from his time at the School may not be in contact with us and we would ask if you could pass on this information to those that you know.

As is the usual practice, we would like to place an obituary for him in the 2023-2024 OI Journal and would be very grateful for any stories or memories you may wish to share which we could put together for the publication. Please address any contributions to me through

With best wishes,

Nicholas Allen
