Mourned death of retired signalman

A well-known Newhaven octogenarian, Mr. Aaron (Tom) Norton, of 6, Beach-road, died in the Brighton General Hospital on Wednesday last week. Aged 81, Mr. Norton had resided on the East Side for over 50 years, and he was a railway signalman until he retired 16 years ago.

One of his chief interests was the old age pensioners, and both he and his wife were early members of the Newhaven branch of the association, in which Mr. Norton took an active part until he had to give up owing to ill health.

The Rector of Newhaven (the Rev. R.G.G.Hooper) conducted the service at the Downs Crematorium, Brighton, on Saturday, and tribute to Mr. Norton was paid by Captain A.Casey, of the Church Army. A memorial service was held the following day at St.Wilfred’s Mission, where Mr. Norton attended for many years. Members of his family and many friends were present. A widow, a son and two daughters are bereaved.
