1951 Obituary Notices of Fellows of the Royal Society  
He was a man of high ideals and steadfast religious convictions and Milne had no hesitation in describing his father as the greatest influence in his early life. Milne's mother, Edith Milne, nee Cockcroft, who survives him with her youngest son, was born at Pontefract. Arthur-he was always known by his second Christian name-was the eldest of three brothers who all entered upon scientific careers.
