Obituary - Anthony Florance (OI 1945-56)

We are sorry to announce the passing of Anthony K Florance who was at the School from 1945 until 1956 and died on 25th January 2024.

He will be sadly missed by his family and friends.

We are conscious that some people from the time when Anthony was 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 Anthony in the 2023-24 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 oldipswichians@ipswich.school

Anthony and I were Prefects together in 1955/56.  In the photograph he is the second from the right in the back row.  'The Ipswichian' of October 1956 includes information about his school achievements under Valete Praefecti and I assume are available in the School archive. (Editor: They are).

I lost touch withAnthony after 1956 although I think we met briefly at Birmingham University in 1960.  On leaving School he studied at King's College in London but may have moved on to Birmingham for further studies.
