I just wondered if that slap happy KBGS English weirdo master Derek Cronshaw is dead or not. As I would still like to slap him about a bit myself. I know he was based in Nottingham for years and played a lot of chess. Any opportunity would of course be greatly appreciated.
The date and place of birth look right, but Derek Cronshaw was still an English Inspector working for Notts LEA up to the early 1990s. (I remember him telling me he was looking for early retirement before the National Curriculum, Ofsted etc came in, which would place the conversation about then.)
I bumped into him perhaps ten/twelve years ago, but I've no idea if he's still with us or not.
Years at KBGS e.g. 1958-1964 (optional) 1962 - 1969
Ah OK Dave, maybe that death record isnt him. ! I cant find a death record for any other Derek Cronshaw on Ancestry (I have a subscription) , thought its only up to date to about 2015 or so. He may well be still alive then !
Obviously the odious Derek Cronshaw is alive in Nottingham and needs a slapping even by highly intelligent ex-KBGS pupils who have worked in London and around the world. He should not escape retribution. Redemption is not for him.
