Through his children, Saunderson’s reputation and ideas might well have been renovated and preserved; through his children his Unionism might well have been presented in an attractive and accessible form to later generations of Irish loyalists. In his last days his obsession with secrecy verged on paranoia and his arrogance became egomania. He rested for the remaining summer months of 1920. His effective influence, and that of the Saunderson dynasty, had ended in a neurotic tantrum at Viceregal Lodge on 31 July 1920.
