Gandhi had spent three years as a law student at the Inner Temple (1888-1891) but he was expelled in 1922 after his campaign of non-cooperation with the British authorities and subsequent imprisonment. Monier-Williams was particularly proud of his role in restoring Gandhi’s reputation at the Bar. “I remember looking at the Bench,” he later recalled, “and saying to myself: ‘I wonder if it’s possible to persuade those white-haired old men to bring Gandhi back post mortem… there is no doubt in my mind that he was a very, very great man.’ ” Evelyn Monier-Williams married Maria-Angela Oswald in 1948.

Dr Lloyd was the author and co-author of several textbooks (including Radiology of the Orbit, Clinical Radiology of the Ear, Nose and Throat, Diagnostic Imaging of the Nose and Paranasal Sinuses, and Diagnostic Imaging of the Ear) and worked at Moorfields Eye, the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital, and privately at rooms in Harley Street.
