Stephen Cutmore (OB 1957-1964)

Stephen Roy Cutmore, 19 April 1946 – 18 December 2020

School House, 1957-1964

It is with profound sadness that at the request of Stephen’s widow Cindy I am advising you of his death just before Christmas resulting from a massive heart attack two days earlier whilst dozing at home. He was rushed to hospital but could not be saved and life support had to be turned off. Although he had successfully beaten cancer some five years ago there were no records or suspicions of any heart problems.

Stephen was born and grew up in north London; our mothers were friends and we attended the same infants’ and junior schools from where he was awarded an LCC Scholarship, funded by the Drapers’ Company, to Bancroft’s in 1957.  (I was fortunate enough to win a similar one in 1958).

Leaving Bancroft’s in 1964, he read Law at the University of Hull and subsequently practised in several firms and for Bournemouth Corporation, having moved there in 1966. In later years he became a circuit judge sitting in various courts in the south and south west, which continued after his retirement from commercial practice.

He is survived by three adult children from his first marriage and his widow Cindy from his second, which was very happy.

With all good wishes for the coming year
