After his death a friend wrote 'If I could not appeal to all who knew him I would not venture to speak of Charles Hammersley, as I do, to readers many of whom perhaps have only heard his name. I knew him for full thirty years, and when I say that he was one of the most kindly of men, with the keenest sense of right and of honour, with all the best instincts of the true English gentleman, - truthful, straightforward, sincere and just, I am sure that all those who had any acquaintance with him will confirm my estimate of the man, and corroborate my opinion of his character.'
