Father of the great comedian, and a noted professional singer in his own right. Born at 22 Orcus Street, St. Marylebone, London ; an address which no longer exits. He was separated from Charlie's mother, the former Hannah Hill, and seldom saw his children. On his death "The Era" wrote : "Our readers will hear with regret but without surprise of the death of poor Charles Chaplin, the well-known mimic and music-hall comedian. Of late years, poor Chaplin was not fortunate and good engagements, we are afraid, did not often come his way. He was buried at Tooting on Monday 13th. May at 12.30. The coffin was of polished oak. The expense was borne by Mr. Albert Chaplin, from South Africa, the brother of the deceased comedian."
