One of the oldest members of the Weaver’s Company, Mr William Walter Kimber, of Enborne Road, Newbury, was laid to rest on Saturday in the Newtown Road cemetery

Mr Kimber was never a weaver, having been employed as a storekeeper at Messrs.Elliotts’ Moulding Works.  Afterwards he was taken on for light work by Newbury Corporation, but by being able to claim a weaver amongst his ancestor

rs he has been a member of the Weavers’ Company for 63 years.

He held the office of beadle and his father, who died just over 40 years ago, held the same office for many years.  He was employed for a long period by Mr.Farrow of the Bridge,and was an occupant of one of the old Pearce’s and Weaver’s Almhouses in West Mills.

When the new houses were erected in the Enborne Road, he moved there and his son lived in the same house.  The funeral took place on Saturday, the first part of the service being at Newbury Parish Church.  The Rector (Canon W.L.Cooper) officiated.
