The Committee of Aldermen to Administer the Sir William Coxen Trust Fund

Purpose of committee

By the will of the late Sir William Coxen, who died in 1946, the Court of Aldermen became trustees of the Sir William Coxen Trust Fund. Under the terms of the Trust, the balance of the income must be applied for the benefit of all or any of orthopaedic hospitals of England, and other hospitals or charitable institutions carrying on similar work (with preference being given to the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital of Great Portland Street, London) in such shares and proportions as the Committee thinks fit. In making his bequest, Sir William had it in mind that ‘...young children up to the age of 14 years should be periodically examined to see that they are growing into healthy men and women and that correction in any faults in them that may arise should be made...’
