#21255, b. 12 October 1898, d. 28 November 1992
Last Edited=15 May 2020
Dr. Donald Vaughan
(1898 - 1992)
     Donald VAUGHAN was born on 12 October 1898 in Peckham, Surrey.1,3,2,4 He was the son of Alexander VAUGHAN and Emma Jane SWINTON.1

He was baptised on 11 February 1900 in St. Mark's Church, Peckham, London. He was baptised at the same time as his sister Hilda, and brother Stanley.5

In the census of 31 March 1901 in 26 Queens Road, Camberwell, London, he was listed as aged 2 born in Peckham, the son of Alexander VAUGHAN.1

In the census of 2 April 1911 in 26 Queens Road, Camberwell, London, he was listed as aged 12 born in Peckham, the son of Alexander VAUGHAN.6

He was a GP in Cromer, Norfolk for many years, and was the first person in that town to own a car (which he called “Olive Green” because of its colour) and made frequent night trips out on lifeboats; he can be seen in one of the photos at the town’s Lifeboat Museum, barely over five feet in height, in a tweed suit and clutching a leather briefcase, surrounded by lifeboatmen in oilskins and sou’westers.4

Donald married Kathleen Heysett HEARD on 1 October 1925 in St. Peter's Church, Brockley, Lewisham, London. He was a Bachelor aged 26, a Surgeon residing at 2 Vicarage Road Comer. His father was listed as Alexander Vaughan, a Merchant Tailor. The marriage was witnessed by Frederick W. HEARD (Bride's father), Marjorie WILCORT, and Alexander VAUGHAN (Groom's father.)7,8,4

On 29 September 1939, in the 1939 National Register, Donald and his wife Kathleen, were listed as living in Swinton House, Norwich Road, Cromer, Norfolk. He was born on 12 October 1898, and his occupation was a General Medical Practitioner. Also listed was three redacted entries, assumed to three of their four children, and a Housemaid, and a Cook.9

Donald died on 28 November 1992 in Swinton House, Old Coach Road, Cromer, Norfolk, at the age of 94.2,4,10,11

His obituary was recorded in the BMJ Volume 306 Page 645 dated 6 March 1993.
It read:
D VAUGHAN
OBE, MRS, LRCP

Donald Vaughan intended originally to become a full time surgeon, but as a general practitioner he performed major surgery of a high standard at Cromer Hospital. He was also a skilled obstetrician and physician. He had a tremendous spirit. During the first world war, despite being under age, he became a pilot in the Royal Flying Corps and eventually became a prisoner of war. Subsequently he was a lifeboat doctor; his services were often needed at sea, especially during the second world war, when he was exposed to many risks. He was life president of Cromer branch of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and was awarded the institution's gold badge. He also served as president of Norwich Medico-Chirurgical Society in 1957, was a founder member of Cromer and Sheringham Rotary Club, and was divisional surgeon of St John Ambulance Brigade, becoming a commander of the Order of St John.12

His estate was probated on 20 May 1993 at the Ipswich Probate Registry, Ipswich, Suffolk.10
His wife, Kathleen, died on 7 September 2006 in the Hammersmith & Fulham registration district.13,4,14,15,16
