I'm looking for photos / sketches / portraits of him for the CPS project's history book.

His dates of birth & death are given in the family tree at: http://www.apac16.dsl.pipex.com/tree/fam/Lindsell.html#914KRL. Unfortunately there aren't any contact details to get in touch with the person maintaining it.

DoD confirmed by his gravestone: http://www.eggsa.org/library/main.php?g2_itemId=2089135

Other dates:

There aren't any relevant results for lindsell in the photo search at HKPRO.

He served on Legco briefly, but they don't have a photo: http://app.legco.gov.hk/member_front/english/library/member_detail.aspx?id=407

No relevant results for lindsell hong kong in the UKNA.

I have found any family trees that mentions him, apart from the one mentioned above for dates of birth & death. There is a general discussion about that family name at: http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=483845.40

 Lindsell had died at the age of 55 in Durban on his way back from leave in England.  

Thanks Doug, and thanks for the clippings by email too - very useful.

Here is a better version of the picture

Roger Lindsell

 

 

In 1934 the Secretary of State for the Colonies named as permanent Puisne Judge Roger Edward Lindsell, the third son of a Herefordshire solicitor who had put in time out East earlier.  Lindsell had been made a Cadet in the Hong Kong Civil Service in 1910 and married a British woman in Canton in that year. Canton was where civil servants went to do a year or two of lannguage training before taking up their posts. He replaced Philip Jacks who had acted as Puisne Judge on several occasions in the early 1930s.

Lindsell clearly made a good impression, as along with Chief Justice MacGregor and Jacks, he was awarded the King's Silver Jubilee Medal in 1935‘in recognition of … loyal and valuable services to the Empire.'
