Arthur Ramsey was President of Magdalene College, Cambridge, and a tutor in mathematics; he was father of Frank Plumpton Ramsey (1903 - 1930), who was only the second person ever to be elected to a fellowship at King's College, not having previously studied at King's.
In 1925 Frank Ramsey married Lettice C Baker and they had two daughters. In 1926 he was appointed as a university lecturer in mathematics and he later became a Director of Studies in Mathematics at King's College.
Suffering from chronic liver problems, he contracted jaundice after an abdominal operation and died on 19 January 1930 at Guy's Hospital in London at the age of 26.
They are buried in the same plot, with Mary Agnes Ramsey (1875 - 1927). He was also father of Michael Ramsey, Archbishop of Canterbury, 1904 - 1988.
