  • Biography: MR ERIC SNELSON died on Tuesday at the age of 87. He was the last male member of the long established and well known Snelson family still living in the village. His son Peter, who lives at Stoke Goldington in Buckinghamshire, reported that in recent weeks his father had told him that "I've had had a good life, a good marriage and a good family."

    Sadly his wife died 17 years ago and since that time Mrs Dorothy Swann a neighbour and relative has done his washing.


    Eric Snelson was born in 1915 and attended Abthorpe School. Before World
    War Two he had an operation to remove a kidney and much to his
    disappointment he was unable to serve in the armed forces. Instead he served
    in "War Aid," and was responsible for the maintenance of tractors and other
    agricultural machinery used by the Women's Land Army and the war effort.

    In
    1948 just after the war, he was working for "War Aid" at Silverstone when
    that wartime bomber airfield was transformed into a motor racing circuit. He
    trained to become an enthusiastic motor sports marshal and that became his
    major leisure interest. He officiated at the very first Grand Prix to be
    held at Silverstone and served for many years as a pit and start line
    marshal at a host of major events. He was still marshalling at the age of
    70.

    Each year since his retirement he has been delighted that the British
    Racing Drivers Club has recognised his contribution to motor sport by
    providing him with complimentary tickets for the British Grand Prix.
    For many years Eric worked at the Caswell Research Establishment near
    Towcester maintaining both transport and machinery. He loved gardening and
    horse racing and was always ready to tip a likely winner at nearby Towcester
    Racecourse. He enjoyed sitting in the inglenook of the village pub to sip a
    pint of his favourite brew. For years he was a Sunday lunchtime regular
    there and his very many friends will miss his company. His voice and
    photographs will live on for a few years yet as he played a part in helping
    to produce a CD about the life and history of Abthorpe distributed free to
    every family in the parish to celebrate the Millennium.


    The Abthorpe Village War Memorial records that although none of the
    Snelson family died in the First World War, ten members of the family served
    in the British armed forces. Eric alleged that his father James Robert told
    him that on one occasion the Snelsons challenged the rest of the village to
    play their family at football. They fielded a team consisting of eleven
    players all with the surname Snelson - and won!

    A "Snelsons of Abthorpe"
    website is maintained by a family member from an address in Sydney,
    Australia and soon news of Eric's death will be winging its way across the
    globe. He was a lovely gentleman and will be greatly missed by all the village.
