Thomas Noel Higton was not on the original Roll of Honour, his name came to light during research into Crich men who served. We know he lived at Plaistow Green, Crich during 1918 and he was living in Crich during the 1930s. The earliest we have managed to find him is in the 1891 census when he was living with his mother and grandparents at Alderwasley. He has not been found in subsequent census records. In 1922 he married Edith Florence Mary JULIAN and he died in 1952 aged 64.

He was baptised at Wirksworth 11 March 1889, mother Julia Higton.
