It is with sadness that we have now heard that Peter passed peacefully away early in the morning of Wednesday 2nd November. Funeral details are unknown, but will be published here if and when they become available.
Sue Griffiths says: “A genuinely lovely gentleman, who it was a privilege to know. I can
picture Mr Bilton bringing Biology alive as I sat in his class. Mr
Bilton used to whistle in the corridor, only to be rebuked by the
Head. I remember his smile as he caught my eye. Our class was
invited to Mr Bilton’s house one evening and we feasted on
delicacies such as home made kipper pate. I still have the recipe
that he copied out for me. There was a warmth about Mr Bilton that
made you feel special and valued. I will never forget him. God bless
you Mr Bilton and thank you. x
Chris Bowden writes to add: “I am based in India, Peter never actually taught me (I joined 6th form in 1976-78), but despite this, his cheery, sincere and caring attitude and awareness of who was who was exceptional and significantly helped me feel part of the school”
Peter’s funeral will be at 10.30 on Friday 27th May at St Bene’t’s Church, Bene’t Street (followed by private cremation).
No flowers by request but donations to Mencap.
I believe the funeral is at 2:15p.m. on Thursday May 5th at the West Chapel, Cambridge Crematorium.
Can’t say I remember it happening in my time (62 – 69).
Boys were allocated to a house according to where they lived, for example those in the Cherryhinton area were put in Cam.
Are you sure about that? I lived just outside Cherry Hinton, and was in Isis. The fellow OC who lived opposite me was in Cherwell.
