We deeply regret to record the sudden death of Benjamin Henry Gerrans, F.I.C., at Clapham Park, on August 12th. For many years he had been chief assistant to the late Colonel Charles E. Cassal, upon whose decease he became Public Analyst for Kensington, the Borough of Battersea, additional Public Analyst for the City of Westminster, Public Analyst for the Kesteven and Holland divisions of Lincolnshire, and for the Borough of Chepping Wycombe. At the time of his death he was Public Analyst for the Metropolitan Borough of Chelsea and Official Agricultural Analyst for the Kesteven and Holland Divisions of Lincolnshire. In 1895 he was appointed as a Gas Examiner to the London County Council, in 1910 to the Urban District Council of Sittingbourne, and in 1921 to the County Borough of West Ham. For thirty‐eight years he was a member of the Consulting Scientific Staff of the British Analytical Control. His death will be keenly felt by all those who were privileged to know him and to appraise his worth. He was elected an Associate of the Institute of Chemistry in 1888.
