Obituary in The Times, 22 December 1966, p. 12, reads (in part): MISS K. ACLAND / WORK FOR HEALTH AND WELFARE / Miss E. Moberly Bell writes:--- / The death of Miss Katharine Acland on December 6 brought to an end a life of immense public service. She will be widely mourned. / She belonged to the well-known West Country family, but it was in Hertfordshire that her public work began in 1909 when she served as a V.A.D., becoming the Secretary of that branch throughout the 1914-1918 War. In the Second World War she served in the A.T.S., becoming a Group Commander and receiving for these services the O.B.E. in the year 1944. At the end of the war she came to live in Chelsea, and, though she was crippled with arthritis and walked on two sticks, she was tireless in her social service. She became a borough councillor in 1949 and served as mayor from 1959 to 1961. Her main interests were health and social services and welfare, and serving on innumerable committees. She was always devoted to the Red Cross. Before the war she had been the county controller in Hertfordshire and in Devon, and in Chelsea was made president of that division in 1961. Her activities also extended far beyond Chelsea for she was the chairman of the Friends of King's College Hospital House Commitee since 1947. She served on teh board of governors at Lady Margaret School, Fulham. / Her activities were also political---she was a staunch Conservative, and having served the women's branch in Honiton before the war she became an active member of the Chelsea Conservative Association. She was a devout church woman, and the memorial service at the Old Church in which she worshipped was crowded with friends from far and wide. / Hers was a rare nature. Her genuine friendliness to every kind of person, the unaffected interest which she took in all her fellows, her generosity, not only financial but personal, seemed unlimited. Perhaps what most people will remember is the extraordinary gallantry with which she faced physical pain and weariness, never for a moment allowing them to interfere in her altruistic labours. She will be long remembered.
Thomas Dyke Acland
OBITUARY: THOMAS DYKE ACLAND.
Another familiar face in Christchurch has gone. At an early hour yesterday Mr T. D. Acland, principal in the firm of Acland,
Dudley and Co., share brokers and general agents, died, after a short illness, at the comparatively early age of forty-six. He had for some months been a sufferer from a combination of diseases, of which gout was the principal, and had recently paid a visit to Sydney for a change of air. During his stay there, however, he was taken ill, and returned here none the better
for his trip. He was present at the polo races at Riccarton on March 12, but could remain only for a short time. On Monday
he went to the Rhodes Convalescent Home, but his disease had then taken too firm a hold on him, and he gradually sank, the end coming at 6:30 a.m. yesterday.
Mr Acland was the eldest son of the Rev L.D. Acland, and was a nephew of the Hon J. B. A. Acland owner of the Mount Peel Station. The Acland family is one of the oldest in the County of Devon. Mr. T.D. Acland was educated at Rugby, and arrived in the Colony when quite a young man. After gaining experience of Colonial life, on his uncle's estate, he settled in Christchurch, engaging in business with which he has been familiarly known ever since. He has always taken a prominent part in sporting circles, and for a number of years has officiatd at Riccarton as clerk of the scales. Mr Acland was a widower, his wife having did several years ago. He leaves one son.
