Gatley, Charles Alexander Robertson

The death has occurred at Bratton, Wilts, of Dr. Charles A. Gatley at the age of 31. The son of Dr. Charles A. Gatley of Kingston-on-Thames, he was educated at Marlborough College and Guy's Hospital where he held the post of house-surgeon. On the outbreak of war he went as house-surgeon in charge of Mrs. Hall-Walkers (Now Lady Wavertree) hospital at Regent's Park, and a year later went to France, attached to the East Kent Regiment. It was while at Cherisy, that in 1917, he was very severely wounded and the results brought about his early death. He was wounded while going up to the firing line, because the stretcher cases were not coming down quick enough.

In April 1919 he entered into partnership with Dr. Trevor Shorland, of Westbury. Dr. Gatley was only recently appointed medical officer for the Bratton district under the Westbury Guardians, and was a member of the Pensions Board for Wiltshire. The burial took place at Bratton, Dr. Bond of Trowbridge representing the Wiltshire Branch of the British Medical Association. British Medical Journal 19 March 1921
