Dyson Nutt, Rate Collector, Surveyor and Clerk to The Burial Board, Loftus

A beautiful portrait of Dyson Nutt in his later years.  This Loftus worthy was born in 1844 and was a familiar figure around Loftus as he fulfilled his various duties to the Council.  During his life in Loftus he lived in several different houses in Loftus, including Westfield Terrace and the Georgian pillard house in the Market Place. He lies in Loy Lane Cemetery, whose burials he oversaw for most of his working life.
