 The death took place on Thursday last of Mr. Charles Haddy, at his residence, Lorna Doone, Clifton-road, Newbury.  Mr. Haddy had only a very short illness, brought on by a severe fall he sustained a short time ago.  Heart trouble followed, which quickly carried him off at the age of 64 years.  The deceased gentleman was a western counties man, being born at Ivy-bridge, Devon.  He took up Post Office work and was connected with the service until his retirement three years ago.  His first appointment was in charge of the telegraph staff at Exeter, and afterwards he was postmaster at Lostwithiel, Shaftesbury, Northallerton, and Bromsgrove.  Leaving His Majesty’s employment after 41 years’ service, he came to live at Newbury, where his son was employed on postal staff.  The late Mr. Haddy was of a very genial disposition, and had made many friends during his stay in Newbury.  He was a Wesleyan Methodist, and took a special interest in Sunday Schools, being secretary and superintendent at Lostwithiel, superintendent at Bromsgrove.  When Mr. Alfred Herbert was called up on military service, Mr. Haddy was approached, and consented to act as superintendent of the Newbury Wesleyan Sunday School and successfully filled that post until his death.


Also :     Charles Haddy married Sarah Ann Radford in October 1876 and they had 2 children – Sarah and Arthur Boxall.  He left effects to the value of £2,356 19s. 11d. to his wife and daughter.  Sarah Ann died on 10/08/1936 at the age of 80.
