Deceased Members of the Renal Association

Among deceased past members of the Renal Association are the leading nephrologists of their eras, as well as other ‘unsung heroes’ who played key roles in establishing nephrology in their own regions and institutions.  We honour them here and provide as much information as we can about their roles and achievements.  As well as deceased past RA members we also include others from the UK and abroad, who were never RA members, but who made distinguished contributions to the development of nephrology in the UK.  Please look at the lists below which are in alphabetical order to pick out your past friends, colleagues, mentors, or heroes.  This resource is curated by John Feehally (RA Archivist), Stewart Cameron, and Chris Winearls.  Click on the name to find an obituary and photographs where these are available. Where a full obituary is not available, we provide a brief note outlining the individual’s key contributions.  Some of the obituaries are made available here through a Renal Association agreement with the Royal College of Physicians of London, which has obituaries of all FRCPs in its own archive, known as Munk’s Roll.  If there is anyone on this list with no obituary posted, and you would be interested to write a piece; or if you have photographs or missing information which you would like to be posted; or if you think there are others whose names should be included here, please contact John Feehally.
