The following extract was published in “The Aberdeen Journal” dated Tuesday, January 3, 1899. As far as I am aware I have no connection to this family, but the information may be of interest researching the family who came from Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
Death of Mr Charles Lumsden
The death occurred at Bieldside, Cults, on the 30th ult., of Mr Charles Lumsden, formerly manager of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank, Limited, Manchester. The deceased gentleman was a son of Mr Charles Lumsden, Banchory. He began his business career at the Banchory branch of the Union Bank of Scotland, and was subsequently transferred to the Aberdeen office of the same bank, where he received a most excellent training in the banking profession, and one that stood him in good stead in after years. In 1881 he migrated to Manchester to enter the service of the bank with which he had ever since been most intimately associated. He joined as corresponding clerk, but, by his exceptional ability, quickly worked his way to the front, becoming successively a branch manager, inspector of the bank, sub-manager, and finally manager of the bank. Unfortunately, for some years past Mr Lumsden’s health had shown signs of failing, and in June last, to the great regret of all his colleagues, he was compelled to resign his position in the bank. He was a man of high moral tone, whilst his force of character and his mental energy and alertness were among the most marked of his characteristics. His death, at the age of 42, is a great loss to the banking community of Manchester, by whom, as by all who knew him, he was held in high esteem and regard.
(Note: According to his death certificate, Charles Lumsden (born 17 April 1856, Echt, Aberdeenshire) was the son of Charles Lumsden (Master Builder) and Marjory Anderson (married either 17 November 1850 Echt or 28 November 1850, Old Machar, Aberdeeen).)
