John Cockle obtained his first qualification, the L.S.A. diploma, in 1834. He practised in London and served for a time on the staffs of the Margaret Street Infirmary and City Dispensary. His main connection, however, was with the Royal Free Hospital, of which he eventually became consulting physician. He was also examining physician for the Royal National Hospital for Consumption. He lectured at the Grosvenor Place School of Medicine, at first on pathology and latterly on medicine. He was particularly interested in the subject of aneurysm and the possibilities of its surgical treatment. He had a considerable private practice and was a member of many learned societies. In 1873 he delivered the centenary address of the Medical Society of London, and in 1879 held office as president of the Society.
