Stephen retired in 1963/4 and died soon thereafter.

Trevor Huddleston by Piers McGrandle p47
So, first, [Trevor] needed to get to know the fellow members of the Community who were staying with him at the Priory in Sophiatown, a small bungalow with two front doors and a red tin roof, which was set back from the street. The older brethren were all older than him; there was Fr David Downton, who was in his sixties; Fr Stephen Carter and Fr Matthew Trelawney-Ross, both in their fifties; and Fr Claude Lunniss, who was in his thirties.

Death: 1 January 1965, at The Kensington Sanatorium, Johannesburg, Transvaal, South Africa
