    • Mr. Berrisford Stanley Tatham died yesterday at his home at Walton-on-Thames at the age of 61. He was appointed one of the Conveyancing Counsel to the Court in 1957, and had for many years enjoyed an extensive practice at the Chancery Bar.
      He was born at Bournemouth on August 25, 1899, and was the son of Stanley Tatham, a naval architect. He was educated at Harrow, Woolwich Academy, and Trinity College, Cambridge, and served in the R.E. from 1917 to 1919 and in the R.A.S.C. from 1939 to 1941 until invalided out of the service. In 1925 he married Patricia, daughter of Brigadier Walton, C.B., C.M.G., who survives him. together with three sons and a daughter. Throughout his life he took a keen interest in the affairs of the Innholders Company, of which he was Master in the years 1955-56 and 1956-57.
      He was called to the Bar by Lincoln's Inn in 1927, and was a pupil of the late Mr. R. H. Hodge. While he lacked perhaps the competitive temperament and attack which usually form part of the equipment of a great advocate he soon became an accomplished and elegant draftsman and a conscientious and knowledgeable lawyer, whose advice was much valued by an ever increasing circle of solicitors, and whose arguments when in court were listened to with respect by the judges.
      Berrisford Tatham was a lovable man of great charm of character, who can hardly have had an enemy in the world. He showed great fortitude and courage in face of the ill-health which beset him in later life. He had a keen sense of humour, a hatred of all shams, a rigid integrity, and an unfailing patience and kindness in making available his wide learning and experience to younger men at the Bar. While he lived he honoured the profession which he practised, and by his death he has made heavy the hearts of his very many friends and admirers. {Obituary, The Times]
