Anton Moctonian – sad news of his death

Camden UNISON shares with deep regret the news of the sudden and untimely death on Monday 28 December of Anton Moctonian, a long-time NUPE and then Camden UNISON shop steward and Assistant Branch Secretary (Blue Collar).

After leaving the branch and Camden Council’s Housing Department nearly a decade ago, Anton had gone on to become an energetic and much respected tutor in the Unite trade union, though he maintained a keen interest in our branch’s campaigns.

During his time in Camden Anton earned a reputation as a dogged and exceptionally effective representative, both of individual members and whole sections of manual workers.

Our branch’s sympathies go out to his many friends and comrades, but in particular to Vaughan, his partner of nearly three decades. The branch Facebook page and this website will provide details of Anton’s funeral/memorial service once those become available.

  1. Details of Anton’s funeral have now been confirmed by his partner, Vaughan. The humanist service will take place on THURSDAY 14 January from 4.00 PM at the Golders Green Crematorium, Hoop Lane, NW11 (nearest Tube: Golders Green, Northern line). There will be a memorial event in central London later in the year, but no details are yet available in that regard.

  2. I went to both primary and secondary school with Anton in Clapton and Camden Town. Anton came on day trips to Southend with my late parents and I. We both love Spurs and he was a brilliant footballer. My condolences to Vaughan. Anton was a good and kind soul. Such sad news. Geoffrey Strum. PS, I only just saw the sad news on the net. 23rd Feb 2016

  3. I am ashamed to admit that I have only just today (24 Jan 2017) learned of Anton’s death. I did not know him well as a person but met him a few times when I was down in London for demos, marches and specifically MFS meetings in the 90s at the Friends Meeting House in Holborn. I found that he was always a pleasant and friendly guy and nice to ‘be with’. So sorry to hear of his death. My sympathies to his nearest and dearest, friends and comrades.
