Edwin Orton was used by God to establish the Birmingham City Mission in 1966 and he led the work until 1997 when he retired. Edwin went to be with the Lord on Saturday 4th July 2020. As with so many other funerals in the past year, only a few were able to attend and so his son, Martyn, has created a memorial website in memory of his father. Martyn explains:
As a family, we had hoped to hold a memorial service for Dad at around this time, thinking last summer that restrictions may have been lifted by now. Sadly, this is not the case and so we have created a memorial website where tributes, photos and memories of Edwin and Dorothy can be shared with family and friends around the world.
The website has been published in time for what would have been Dad’s 92nd birthday, 2nd March 2021.
