Grave of Jankel Adler - Bushy Road in London
Friday 29 April 1949
"On Monday afternoon many villagers heard with regret of the almost sudden death of Mr.Jankel Adler. Although his stay in the village had been brief, he had endeared himself to quite a few who came to know him personally, and were impressed by his genial disposition and the calm, reflective and gentle character of his personality. He was an artist of some standing, having examples of his work hung in the Art Galleries of London, Paris, Brussels and America. Of Polish descent, he served in the war. The funeral will take place on Thursday in the Jewish Cemetery, Bushy Road, London. His Aldbourne friends will be represented by Mr. Brennan and Mr. J. Morris".
