Mr. Henry Jenner

Mr. Henry Jenner, F.S.A., who died at Hayle, Cornwall, on Tuesday at the age of 85, was an authority on the ancient Cornish language, of which he had compiled a dictionary. He was the only son of Dr. Henry Lascelles Jenner, the first Bishop of Dunedin, and a grandson of Herbert Jenner-Fust, Dean of the Arches and Master of Trinity Hall, Cambridge. For 40 years he was on the library staff at the British Musuem. He was the senior bard of the Cornish Gorsedd, and had a striking appearance, being tall with a long white bear. He was a composer, and produced "The Cornish Song Book." He married Kate Rawlings1, novelist and writer on art.

The funeral will be at Lelant on Saturday at 12.15, after requiem Mass at Downes at 11 o'clock.
