Frederick Hunt served the General Hospital, Nottingham, for 40 years as casualty and house officer, surgical assistant and honorary surgeon. For many years he was an active member of the nurses’ committee and lecturer to nurses. As registrar in charge of radium he was largely responsible for the formation of the radiotherapy department. He was a meticulous general surgeon and was unsparing in his advice and help when asked.
On retirement in 1964 he went to live in Thorpe, Derbyshire, where he had a cottage for many years. He was a voracious reader, especially of books on philosophy. His great delight was gardening and walking over the local hills. Having been a keen Methodist, Frederick Hunt was later baptised into the Church of England and became a lay preacher, churchwarden, and a member of the diocesan synod. His wife, died a few years after his retirement; he was survived by his three daughters and his grandchildren.
