Obituary in Point Three - the Toc "H" Magazine: Dec 1983:

"A. Lewis Roberts died in July in Hertfordshire, aged 91. He first joined the Movement in Mid-Salop in 1929. In 1973 he became a Builder and moved into the S.E. region in 1975. We were touched recently when the nurse who cared for him during his last years wrote to us, enclosing a cheque: there had, by request, been no flowers at the cremation, and the total donations were sent to us because his nurse and his closest friends knew that that would have been his wish."

He never married.
