Dr Martin Richard Green



Martin was extremely keen on seeing the eradication of preventable diseases and if you had considered sending flowers I wonder if you would instead make a small donation that will have a tangible, lasting impact. 

As a family we would like to support, the Malaria Consortium which is a leading non-profit organisation specialising in the prevention, control, and treatment of malaria and other communicable diseases among vulnerable populations. 

The consortium’s mission is to improve lives in Africa and Asia through sustainable, evidence-based programmes  (the aspect that Martin, as a scientist found compelling), that combat targeted diseases and promote child and maternal health.

Messages of condolence

With very much sympathy to all the family. Martin will be much missed. with love from Susan and Steve xx

Dr Stephen Parker

Martin was the man by which I measured all others and never found that wonderful combination of honesty, intelligence and humour in any one else. It was my true luck to work along side Martin for 11 years at Unilever. His support was always given freely above and beyond his role of manager, more like that of a father to a slightly reckless daughter! The shock is still with me, I cannot imagin how you all must feel, take some comfort in the fact that i know he lived life to the full.

My thoughts are with you at this difficult time for all the family.

Mrs Heather Burfitt

Martin has always been a valued friend and fellow-crew member, and this choice of Malaria Consortium reminds me again of how much we shared. It is so sad that he is taken away from his family (and friends) while so young and active. He has contributed a lot and there are many of us who have benefited and appreciated it.

Mr Nigel Lloyd

Sheila and I are still reeling from learning of Martin's death - we'd been on the river with him only a few days previously. Impossible to find words for how much we'll miss his presence. Steady-state will never seem the same again :-(

Dr Jeremy Johnson

Such sad news. Martin was one of the kindest and most generous people I've ever ever met. He'll be missed by many people.


It was my pleasure to have worked with Martin for many years. My thoughts are with you all at this sad time.

Doctor Julia Rogers

I had the privilege of making my acquaintance with Martin some 46 years ago when we were studying chemistry at The Queen's College, Oxford. It came as a great shock to hear the sad news of his death and my thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time. My memories of Martin will always be of a complete gentleman who truly stood for the values of kindness, fairness, trustworthiness and generosity. Martin - we will all miss you.

Mr Roger Derbyshire

It was a huge shock to hear of Martin's death. We joined Unilever within a few years of each other, played in the same rugby team at work for a season or so, and also retired from the company within a couple of years of each other. Martin and I shared an office for several years before I moved to the USA: shared many a scientific discussion during that time and generally put the world to rights. He was an excellent scientist who contributed hugely to our understanding of skin and hair biology. More importantly he was a genuine, generous guy. Clive Harding

Mr Jozef Tubek

I was so sorry to hear the sad news about Martin. He was an excellent scientist, a true gentleman and a top bloke. RIP. Mark B

Mr Mark Berry

It was a real pleasure to get to know Martin, through the marriage of James to our daughter Rachel. We enjoyed chatting at family gatherings with him and we were looking forward to future occasions when we might all be together. We are so very sorry that Martin has left us far too soon. We will remember him and we will miss him very much.

Mr & Mrs Martin & Andrea Gooch

Dave and were always grateful for Matin's quiet presence and support at our family events both happy and sad over the years. My late father-in-law Norman always spoke of him with great affection and pride. Sue Bowtell

Mrs Sue Bowtell

Martin was kind and caring and will be greatly missed by all his family and friends. Although we did not meet very often, I was glad that he was my cousin and pleased that he had much happiness in his life - only sorry that he has left so early.
