Yesterday afternoon the Rechabites and Good Templars of Newbury, followed to his last resting-place in the cemetery Wallace Duck, who was connected with both these bodies, and the respect and confidence which he was held was testified by the fact he had been elected Chief Templar, an office he had just completed.

Deceased was the son of the late Mr. William Duck, for many years butcher and in business in Bartholomew-street.

He had been employed at Mr. Liddiard’s of the Bridge, and died at the age of nineteen, after only having been confined to his bed three days.

In addition to the members of the John Wynchcombe Tent of Rechabites, and those of the I.O.G.T., and Victory Entertainers, there were a large number present to show their respect and attest their sympathy with the widowed mother bereft of her only son.

The officiating minister was the Rev. G.J. Knight. Two hymns were sung; “Rock of Ages” and “There is sweet rest in heaven”. The workmates of the deceased acted as bearers.

Wreaths were sent by the Recabites, Good Templars and Victory Entertainers, Mr. Henry Wright, Mr. North, Mr. Liddiard and Employees, &c., &c.

The funeral was conducted by Mr. A. Jackson.
