John Elliott, who was born at Whitchurch in Shropshire, received his scientific education at Owens College, Manchester, and St. Bartholomew’s Hospital. He graduated as B.Sc. in 1880, qualified four years later, and proceeded to the F.R.C.S. in 1886. Having filled house appointments at St. Bartholomew’s and the Birmingham General Hospital, he settled in practice at Chester, where in 1895 he succeeded to a vacancy on the staff of the Royal Infirmary. He was largely instrumental in effecting the modernisation of the Hospital, completed in 1914. During the war years, he visited the Chester War Hospital and Red Cross Hospitals in the area, receiving the O.B.E. for his services. Elliott was a member of the Chester city council from 1895 to 1898 and took a prominent share in local affairs. As a hobby he experimented in colour photography. He was married and had three daughters and a son.
