Lance Walton

Lancelot Henry Frederick Walton (1902-1998), known as Lance, was the third of five children of Charles Henry Walton, a solicitor, and his wife, Fanny (née Robinson). 

Lance is mentioned in a number of letters written by Mary Anna Robinson to her sister, Eugénie Sladden.

In 1931, Lance married Hilda Betty (Dawn) Drew St Mathias Church, Richmond.  This wedding photo shows Lance and Dawn and guests at the reception.

Lance died on 15th October 1998 and his obituary appeared in The Times of 11th November 1998.

We are grateful to Jenny Gosney, daughter of Lance Walton, for allowing us to publish a copy of this photo and the obituary.
