Horton Lane, Epsom

Titanic disaster survivor George Pelham, a one-time patient of one of the Epsom cluster of former psychiatric hospitals, will be commemorated.

One of the roads on the Livingstone Park housing development being built by Charles Church, on the old Horton Hospital site, is to be called Pelham Street.

Mr Pelham was a member of the Titanic crew and subsequently became ill. He was later a patient at Horton Hospital where he died.

He is buried in the cemetery at Horton Lane where a memorial stone has now been laid by Epsom and Ewell Council. [The memorial unveiled in February 2005 is "to commemorate the patients who died and were buried in Horton cemetery" and is not to George Pelham alone.]
