King Edward VII only reigned for 9 years. He died on 6th May 1910. How many British Edwardians are there?

 

 

More than we can usefully count because the serious research only attaches itself to super-centenarians.

Oh aye, and the British press will doubtless make summat of the demise of Ethel Lang, regardless of when she goes.

well we'll soon find out http://www.telegraph...s-aged-114.html

 

She was everywhere yesterday including ITN's 6-30 summary. I'm guessing the next time our oldest person dies it'll be slightly less of an event.

I've just realised there are MORE people born in the 1800s still alive at the end of the year than there were at the start ! None of them have died during the year but one more was added to the list (Gertrude Weaver)so its gone from 5 to 6 ! Isn't it infuriating !


Not if you're Gertrude Weaver.

Ethel Lang, Britain's oldest, dies aged 114.

Ah, a fair points injection for the Deathrace, then.

Aye, but they were an under-performing dead pool brigade, stubborn to the end.


Being stubborn is one of the requirements for getting that old.

Sad to hear about the demise of 'The Pussy Perishers' ��
That's the trouble with today's elderly, so selfish��
