Grave. Wavenden Parish Churchyard, Buckinghamshire, England

DEATH of SIR CHARLES CLARKE of Worlingham Hall in his 87th year He had been in failing health for some time, and spent the winter at Brighton instead of going to France as he had done regularly for several years. He returned home just a week before his death, and passed peacefully away about 8 o’clock on Tuesday evening. He was born in 1812, and was educated at the Charterhouse, and Trinity College, Cambridge. He took his BA degree in 1831, and his MA in 1835. He married in 1838, Rosa Mary, eldest daughter of Mr Henry Alexander, of Cork Street, and they had issue three sons and five daughters. Lady Clarke died in 1885. Having entered Holy Orders Sir Charles Clarke was appointed Rector of Hanwell in Middlesex in 1847, and held the living till 1864. In 1857 he succeeded his father, the first Baronet, who was physician to Queen Adelaide, the creation dating from 1831, as of Dunham Lodge, Norfolk. He subsequently purchased the Worlingham Hall Estate [at the age of 52] and made his home there, esteemed and respected by all classes. A Liberal in politics before the great schism, he was never very active in party contests, but religious and philanthropic movements found in him a warm supporter.
The parish church at Worlingham owes its restoration to him and his family, and also the fine organ, which dates from 1874. Sir Charles Clarke for many years assisted in the services, and down to the latest period of a long and active life always evinced the warmest interest in all matters relating to the parish and neighbourhood. He took an active interest in establishing the Beccles Hospital, and could always be counted on as a supporter of every movement and institution calculated to benefit the community.
He was not the Rector of Worlingham, but played an active role in the services.
He is succeeded by his eldest son, General Sir Charles Mansfield Clarke, KCB l, who was engaged in the New Zealand Wars 1861-66, in the Zulu war, 1879, in Basutoland, 1880-81, and commanded the forces in Madras in 1893-98. The present Baronet was married in 1876 to Gemma Cecilia, only daughter of the late Mr Pitt Adams. At the funeral on Saturday, the flag was flying at half mast over the steeple, and there were other signs of mourning in the village. A very large and representative gathering filled the church to overflowing. The procession started from the Hal about 2.15, and was joined in the Park by the tenants, and at the Park gates by parishioners and a number of tradesmen and others from Beccles and the surrounding district. At the church gates the coffin was transferred from the hand hearse to the bier, and borne into church on the shoulders of eight of the estate workers. The officiating clergy were Rev A Aldred, rector of Worlingham, and Rev W Stanborough, curate to Sir Charles when he was rector of Hanwell.Members of the family present were General Sir Charles Mansfield Clarke, who had hurried home from Rome, Miss Clarke, Miss Alice Clarke, Mr Geoffrey Clarke, Mr Frederick Clarke, Mr & Mrs Wm A Clarke, Mr & Mrs Kerrison, Mr Hall-Parlly, Mr Neville Watersfield, Captain Waterfield, Mr Bertram Waterfield, Mr Bertram Waterfield, Mr Laurance Harrison, Mr Leonard Harrison, Mr Roger Kerrison, Dr John Clarke (brother), Mr Alexander, Rev Walter Partridge, Mr Tomlin, Mrs Curtis, Mr A Court, Mr R Bruce (butler) and Miss Page (lady’s maid represented the household servants.The tenants present at the funeral were Messrs E Masters, G King, W Snell, G Hadenham, AC Hadenham, W Hadenham, W Welton, J Aldous, H Jacobs, JP Godbold, James Spatchett, R Read, TL Ashford, DP Giles, WF Smoothy and W Prime (steward).Among the others WM Crowfoot, JE Crisp, AWoods, Lt Clarkson, John Clarke, S Le Grice, HG Read, CH Durrant (agent), EW Hindes, JS Branford, W Hamby, PJ Jolly, HL Robins, AR Block, S Steel, SF Field, R Tilney, TA Poll, James Mills, AG Cross, J Nobbs, CJ Allen, RW Snell, CC Betts, H Copeman, WJ Money, Ex Supt Riches, Inspector Lingley etc.
