    • Louis celebrated his 90th birthday with friends and relations, but two years later had a nasty fall and spent his birthday in Torbay Hospital, but, after being operated on, was much improved. Unfortunately the following April he had a bad stroke but "though unable to speak he appeared to understand much of what we said to him." He returned home in May "but he only survived a week, as he passed away peacefully" and was buried with the Bishop of Exeter "giving a very beautiful address." The Newton Abbot police rang peals on the bells before and after the service, as Louis had been in the special police for many years. [6]
