  East Grinstead Observer, Saturday, July 21st 1917
THE DEATH occurred, somewhat suddenly on Tuesday afternoon, of Mr F. S. Clark a well known resident of this district. He resided at WHITECROFT and had been in a weak state of health for some time, so his end was not altogether unexpected. Before coming to Forest Row Mr Clark resided at Haven, Crawley Down. He was a genial, good natured gentlemen and had many friends in the district.
