Ken Stradling: 2 January1922 – 31 July 2022

The Gane Trustees would like to commemorate the life of Ken Stradling MBE.

Ken was a Trustee of the Gane Trust for many years, becoming Chairman in 1988 until 2013. He was the last Trustee to have known Crofton Gane personally.

He had a lifetime love of design as shown by his influence at the Bristol Guild and the Stradling Collection which he has left in Trust for the public to enjoy in the centre of Bristol.

Even when he reached 100 Ken still seemed to have an inner strength that made things happen.
