The passing of Mr. Henry Maccabee at his residence, “Roseleigh,” Cromwell-road, Wash Common, on Tuesday in last week, removes a familiar figure from the town and neighbourhood. He was a quiet, unobtrusive man of genial disposition and a character generally to be admired.


For many years he was in business as a general house decorator, and is succeeded by his son. He was known as a conscientious workman, always putting the best into everything.


As a staunch supporter of the Newbury Baptist Church, he was, together with his wife, one of the oldest members, and both joined the fellowship at about the same time. He was the last surviving member of a large family. Mr. Maccabee, who was in his 76th year, leaves a widow and six children.


The funeral took place on Saturday, a service being held in the Baptist Church prior to the interment at the Newtown-road Cemetery…….


The mourners were: Mrs. H. Maccabee (widow), Mr. w.H. Maccabee and Mr. S. Maccabee (sons), Mrs. H. Chalk, Mrs. S. Tilbury and Mrs. E. Guy (daughters), Mrs. S. Macabeee and Mrs. W.H. Maccabee (daughters-in-law), Mr. H. Chalk and Mr. S. Tidbury (sons-in-law), Mr. E. Tilbury and Mr. R. Tilbury grandsons), Miss M. Chalk (grand daughter), Nurse Willis and Mr. and Mrs. Rose.
