Crossing the bar for the final time - Stephen Billing
Tue 27 Mar 2018

Back

It is with great sadness that the Port announces the passing of local fisherman Stephen Billing (Binns). Stephen was a long standing fisherman of 28 years in the Port and died at the age of 68 after a short illness.

Harbour Master Robert Smith MBE said “I worked alongside Stephen during all his time at the Port and Stephen never had a crossed word or a bad thing to say about anybody. No matter what was asked of him nothing was ever too much trouble and it was a privilege and pleasure to work with and know Stephen”

There was a Service of Thanksgiving for Stephen at Cromer Crematorium on 26th February which showed how popular he was, being standing room only and attended by the fishing fraternity around the coast and also the local community.
