  • We are Norman Ashton's grandchildren from his daughter 'Aroha Ashton', visiting from Australia. We are here for a family members wedding, and stumbled across his archive by chance. It has been a wonderful surprise and we would like to leave this message and pay our respects. We miss you Pop.
    Love your Grandchildren.
