Within a few hours of the death of Sir Johnston Forbes-Robertson last Saturday, there died another actor, Mr. Alexander John Scott-Gatty, whom Sir Johnston had with him many years ago when on his final tour.
Mr. Scott-Gally was in his sixtysecond year. He was the son of Sir Alfred Scott-tatty, Garter King of Arms. Relinquishing the graphic arts for the stage, he began his theatrical career nearly thirty years ago. and except for a long intermission during the Great War, when he served as a lieutenant in the Hertfordshire Regiment, he was almost constantly on the boards, in a great variety of parts, with the addition of broadcasting in recent times. Only last week he was to have been in a broadcast play, The Family Tree, but before the date fixed he was seized with his last illness.
The funeral took place at Welwyn on Wednesday last, after a requiem Mass at St. Patrick's Soho Square.
