The death of Richard Lawson Martindale Snr


February 23, 1926
Mr. Richard Lawson Martindale Snr., chairman of the Liverpool Football Club, died yesterday. He was 59 years of age, and had been a member of the Anfield Board for 16 years and chairman for the past two years.

Mr. Martindale, whose health had not been good for a long time, was a sound judge of the game, and his tact and unfailing good-humour made him popular with both players and officials. Mr. Martindale was a coal merchant, and resided in Mossley Hill.
(Liverpool Courier: February 24, 1926)
