Percy Watkins, 2x2 UK Worker, Suicide by Drowning

Percy Watkins, 2x2 UK worker and companion to Peter Liddle, under overseer Ben Crompton, supposedly committed suicide by drowning at age 58 about Feb 2015. An inquest was held and it was determined death by drowning. Police said there were no signs of a struggle. Percy's body was reportedly found by his companion Peter Liddle who was the last person to see him.

Ben Crompton's Email about Percy Watkin's Suicide

The email from Ben Crompton, read out in the Sunday afternoon mission (1st March) ran something along the lines of this:

"Percy has been under considerable personal and emotional stress recently due to legal allegations made against him from some time ago. Upon seeking legal advice, he was told that no matter how untrue these allegations, it is almost impossible to prove innocence. It seems that Percy could find no other way than to take his own life and so avoid further damage to the kingdom."

My Questions

  • Ben Crompton claimed there were legal allegations, but no accusations against him had ever been filed according to police research. Why did Ben Crompton lie about this very important matter?
  • No person is known to have accused Percy of anything, so why did Ben Crompton make this up?
  • If, the accusations were made some time ago, then why hadn't these legal accusations been dealt with some time ago?
  • Whose legal advice did Percy Watkin's supposedly seek according to Ben Crompton?
  • Did Ben Crompton purposefully put guilt on Percy to shift attention away from himself?
  • If Percy Watkins was innocent, why didn't he just make a public statement?
  • If Percy Watkins was supposedly guilty of something, why didn't he confess his sin and reconcile with his accuser as the Bible teaches?
  • Did Ben Crompton want Percy Watkins to commit suicide instead of pay for the legal expense?
  • If Percy Watkins could not prove his innocence, then did Ben and Percy realize he was guilty?
  • If there was evidence against Percy, why didn't Percy admit his error?
  • If there was no evidence against Percy, then why didn't Percy just go on with his life and acknowledge that there was a false accusation?
  • Why didn't Ben Crompton claim that Percy was falsely accused?
  • Did Ben Crompton realize that Percy was guilty and that's why they realized that Percy could not prove innocence?
  • Why did Ben Crompton speak this way and not condemn suicide instead?
  • Since Percy was a senior worker and not a young companion easily disposed of , how much money did Ben Crompton stand to lose if Percy went to trial?
  • What other workers have you ever heard of committing suicide? Even Leslie White - Home sent an email stating he was innocent when accused by a sister worker of rape, see Sister Worker 2012-06-06
  • What besides child sexual abuse would cause a person to take their own life? If it was adultery or rape wouldn't they just do what other worker's have done? Even Ira Hobbs didn't commit suicide after his child sexual abuse was exposed.

Where and How Did Percy Commit Suicide

It has been reported to me that,

"Apparently Percy was discovered by his companion Peter Liddle in the Lancashire home of a 2x2 called Pauline Butterworth."

Peter Liddle, Percy's companion, found Percy dead at Pauline Butterworth's house.

Youth 323 Forum

And posted on the Youth 323 Forum by someone who didn't know that Percy committed suicide...

For those who know him I hear that our dear brother worker Percy Watkins has suddenly and unexpectedly passed away. A most gently inspiring man, brother & minister. I've not heard any details. I was always in awe of his gentle manner, it seemed to me he always made suggestions or sowed a seed of thought rather than making forceful statements. He was a great support to and deputy if that is the right term to the overseer here in England and Wales. I'm uncertain of his age but he would be around 60. Greatly and sadly missed

Suicide Note

If Percy Watkins committed suicide, then there must be a suicide note. The suicide note has not been fully disclosed. I hope to get a photocopy some time. Why has it not been disclosed? What are the reasons why Percy committed suicide? Why would a person who purports to be a minister of Jesus Christ and who claims to reconcile people to Jesus Christ not know how to reconcile themselves with others and with God instead of committing suicide?

Suicide Pleas

Before people commit suicide, they often show certain signs. Who were the people around Percy Watkins that saw these signs (if it was indeed a suicide and not a murder), and what did they do about it?

How did Percy Watkins Commit Suicide?

It has not been disclosed how Percy committed suicide. The public inquest will disclose this and will probably be available after the inquest into his sudden death.


An inquest for Percy Watkins death was held at 10:00 AM on June 16th, 2015. This was an investigation into suspicious deaths. Certainly Percy's death is suspicious.

See inquest is public and if there was a suicide note, it should be publicly available.


  • Does Ben Crompton take any responsibility for Percy's suicide by promoting man-made "no marriage allowed" rules
  • Cause and Effect : Responsibility. Jesus said that when a man divorces his wife, he causes her to commit adultery. So to use this same principle of cause and effect, does Ben Crompton care that he caused Percy to commit suicide?
    Mat_5:32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
  • If the teachers and leaders of a cult commit suicide, then doesn't this teach their followers to commit suicide?
    Mat_10:24 The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.
    Luk_6:40 The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.

    I believe we will see more 2x2s commit suicide now that their masters have approved of and set the precedent for suicide.


    Amazingly of the thousands of people googling Percy Watkins death, many 2x2s are just now learning about the cult's founder William Irvine and that the 2x2s "ministry" is a for-profit organization that collects all the money from the WORKERS annually at CONVENTIONS.
