Owing to failing health, Mr. Chivers had not taken an active part in the business for some time past, but his loss will be sincerely mourned by the staff, and also by the villagers, with whom was very popular, his kindly disposition having endeared him to all with whom he came into contact. Mr. Chivers was a member of the County Council for over 12 years, representing the division. He was deacon of Histon Baptist Church, and a manager of Histon School...'[2]
