Fallen Asleep: Arthur Rendle Short, M.D., F.R.C.S., aged 73, Sept. 14th, while staying with friends at Hereford, on his way from an M.S.C. Conference at Llanfairfechan. Our brother, who was Emeritus Professor of Surgery at Bristol University, Hunterian Professor, Royal College of Surgeons and, latterly, Consulting Surgeon at the Bristol Royal Infirmary, took his stand in early life as a humble follower of Christ and never shrank from confessing, by lip and life, Whose he was and Whom he served. He was particularly interested in missionary work and was one of the originators of the M.S.C. Conferences, and it seems so fitting that he was able, just before his Home-call, to render help—always so valued—at one of these. How many young lives has he helped heavenwards by his oral and written ministry! Let us remember in our prayers, his widow and son and two daughters.

His wife: Mrs. [Helen Henrietta Case] Rendle Short died at Clifton on 30th November 1965.
Death of his father: Aug. 14th, 1947 at Bristol, EDWARD RENDLE SHORT, aged 96. Our brother's grace and gift, and particularly his pastoral in connection with assemblies in Bristol, will be long remembered, and many will count it a privilege to have known him, including the large number of servants of Christ both at home and abroad, who have been present at the Conferences held annually in Bristol. “Echoes of Service” 1947
