Giuseppe Faccini:Brighton asphalter
My husband’s grandfather, Giuseppe Faccini, came to England in 1920. He walked from Northern Italy, working his way through France. He settled in Brighton and started work as an asphalter.
He lived at 27 Richmond Hill in 1920,and moved to 20 Regents Hill in 1932. He travelled backwards and forwards to Italy, to visit his wife and family, staying over there for about six months each time. He died in Brighton about 1940,and was buried there.
