Bertram Louis Abrahams (1870–1908) had a successful career at University College and was later appointed to Westminster Hospital. He took a keen interest in the social welfare of his community and was a founder of the Jewish Lads’ Brigade. Abrahams was dogged by kidney trouble for years which persuaded him to seek a warmer climate in Egypt. However, the disease resulted in his death at the early age of 38.
