Frances Elton

Posted on 14th February 2022

We at BSLBT were extremely saddened to learn that Frances Elton passed away recently.  Frances contributed a great deal to the Deaf community over many years, especially to the field of sign linguistics.  She will be sorely missed.  Our thoughts are with Frances' family and friends, and especially her partner June Smith.

If you'd like to know more about Frances' life and work, you can watch Close Up 3: Frances Elton here on our website.
