Footnotes

  • Norman John Lancelot Rollason was born in Smethwick on 6 May 1883, and was educated at Five Ways Grammar School and Birmingham University, graduating M.B., Ch. B. in 1905, and proceeding M.D. in 1908. After house appointments at the Queen's Hospital, Birmingham, he joined the late Dr. John Orton in general practice in Coventry where he rapidly became a well-loved family doctor. During the First World War he served as a Surgeon Lieutenant Commander in the R.N.V.R., and from 1914 to 1964 he served continuously on committees concerned with medical administration. When he retired from active work an illuminated scroll recording his 50 years' service was presented to the executive council in the presence of the Lord Mayor of Coventry by the Coventry Local Medical Committee.
    During the Second World War he rendered valiant service at the time of the air raids on Coventry. He had a distinguished record in the St. John Ambulance Association, and in 1957 was created a Commander of the Venerable Order of St. John of Jerusalem. For many years he was the Vicar's Warden at St. Laurence's Church, Foleshill, Coventry, and Secretary and Treasurer for the Parochial Church Council. He loved Freemasonry, for there he felt he could relax away from his busy practice, and was a past Master of the St. John's Lodge of Freemasons and an officer of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Warwickshire.
    A member of the British Medical Association, he was a representative at the Annual Meeting in 1921 and 1922, and again in 1931.
