2016 marks the centenary of the birth of Cedric Charles Dickens (1916-2006). Cedric was the great-grandson of Charles Dickens, being the grandson of Sir Henry Fielding Dickens. Cedric was twice President of the Dickens Fellowship (1964-66) and (1988), founder of the Dickens Pickwick Club (still going strong) and author of (amongst other works) Drinking with Dickens and Dining with Dickens.
To mark the centenary of Cedric’s birth a biography of him has been published, written by Jane Monk (Cedric’s daughter) and Marion Lloyd (nee Dickens). The book is hard backed and consists of 240 pages with many interesting photos of Cedric during his long and varied life.
