Norman’s wife Yvonne informed the School of his sad passing at the age of 85 on 5 July 2017, and supplied the following words:

Norman was born in Edinburgh, moving to Oxford at a young age. He was always very grateful for the quality of education he had received at MCS and loved to recall his school days. One such memory was being at the Iffley Road track to see the first four minute mile. He left MCS in 1948 to start a varied 40-year career with the Midland Bank, later HSBC, working in branches throughout the Thames Valley and West London. He retired as the Manager at Park Royal Branch and took ordination into the Anglican ministry, serving as a non-stipendiary minister for a further 20 years, in parishes and as a chaplain at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.
