OBITUARY
Christopher Robert Dalrymple Sandes, Walhampton 1962-1966

Sara Lowdell (nee Sandes) contacted us recently to share the sad news of the death of her brother Christopher Sandes in Cape Town on 19th December 2018, his 65th birthday:

"Christopher was at Walhampton from 1962-65/66  when John Bradfield (JB) and Peter Lawford (PL) were joint headmasters. We lived in Malaya then in the New Forest and had ponies so we knew Margo Kemp well. Christopher was in Scott house.

We left to live in South Africa....and Christopher remained there but I returned, as did my parents. My mother just died 7 weeks before Christopher. His memorial service was in Cape Town. He had 2 children, Ryan Sandes, the eldest, is an ultra marathon runner and has broken the record for crossing the Himalayas."


If you remember Christopher and would like to pass on a message to Sara, please email Samantha Allen on s.allen@walhampton.com who will forward it on.
