In 1860, Frederick William Gingell became Life Governor of The London Hospital [LH/A/15]; Died on 5th February 1863, 29yrs (sic) at Woodhouse, East Ham, Essex [GRO Index: Jan-Mar 1863/W.Ham/4a/21; The Times, 7 Feb 1863, p.1]; Buried 11 Feb 1863, St Mary Magdelene, East Ham, Essex [National Burial Index]; Upon his death, the following was published in the papers: EXTRAORDINARY PRESENTIMENT OF SUDDEN DEATH. - Mr F. W. Gingell, of Woodhouse, East Ham, of the firm of Messres James Gingell and Sons, died suddenly on Thursday evening last, under most singular circumstances. He was sitting at dinner with the family, when he observed to his father, "I have a presentiment that I shall die suddenly." The words were no sooner pronounced than (sic) his head drooped, and he expired without a groan or other indication of death. The poor of Whitechapel have lost a valued friend. [Daily News, 9 Feb 1863; The Liverpool Mercury, 9 Feb 1863]. Also a tribute to Frederick William, "THE PATH OF A SUNBEAM", was published by W. Weldon Champneys, M.A. (Canon Residentiary of St Paul's, and vicar of St Pancras). Publishers: Seely, Jackson, and Halliday, Fleet Street, London - MDCCCLXIII; Printed by Strangeways and Walde, Castle Street, Leicester Square, London. The publication covers 76 pages:

* The Canon's tribute (48 pages) written on the morrow of the funeral. The Reverend Vicar professes that "It was my privelege (and I thank God, who in His good providence gave it to me) to know this dear young christian very intimately. He was the much-loved and and valued friend of my own sons, especially of my eldest, and I can truly say that, beyond the circle of my own family , there was no one I loved so dearly. Indeed, it was impossible not to love him." In the tribute the vicar expounds the christian faith of the young Frederick, as well as, his spirituality especially in his being prepared for the call to his death. It is revealed that on that same evening of his death, on his way back home, Frederick confessed to the coachman that he will breath his last within a few hours. *An Address (unfinished), written in pencil, and apparently intended for publication , was found, after his death, on the pocket of his outer coat. *Letter by F.W. written to a young friend on the ordination to the ministry of the Church of England. *Extracts from letters (over 35) written to members of his family after his decease, giving testimony to the opinions formed on him, and the estimation in which he was held by various friends.
