JACK PEPLER FORMER CORONER FOR SOUTH BRISTOL, CLEVEDON AND WESTON SUPER MARE

I have today learned of the sad death on 8th February of Jack Pepler. In the 1970s and 80s Jack was one of the two coroners for Avon and was responsible for South Bristol from Bath to Clevedon and Weston super Mare. Those of us who were in practice in the South West in those years well remember his distintive style as coroner. Jack was born in 1914 and had he survived, last month would have seen his 99th birthday. I have written to his Widow, Judith who survives him and hope to be able to publish an obituary in next year's annual report.
