This is my grandad Maurice William Taylor who was born at Brighton General Hospital in Elm Grove on the 23/06/1923. He was a sailor for the duration of WWII. When he left the Royal Navy, he went straight to work Brighton Station.
He worked as a train driver till his death in November 1985. He was known to his colleagues on the railway by his nickname ‘Cocker’. We are not certain of the date of the photo but it was taken just before his death, so is c1984/85. The family lived in Maresfield Road and all our generations of family have been born at Brighton General Hospital or the Royal Sussex County Hospital to date.
It would be terrific to know if anyone remembers him.
