DEATH OF WELL-KNOWN WESLEYAN MINISTER.

 

After a comparatively brief illness—he was preaching at Oxford-road a fortnight previously—the Rev. C. E. Griffin passed away at his residence in Highmoor road on Friday in last week. Upon his retirement some years since, Mr. Griffin came to Caversham from Newbury, and, always of an energetic nature, he was despite advancing years, in great demand in the circuit .

At the service on The Heights on Sunday morning the Rev. H. A. Swansborough paid a tribute to his memory and the organist (Mr. Baker) played "O rest in the Lord" and the Dead ]March. The remains were cremated at Woking and interred at Newbury yesterday (Friday). A. preliminary funeral service was, however, held at The Heights on Wednesday, when a large number of friends connected with the chapel and representatives from Lower Caversham and Oxford road, in addition to near relatives were present.
