The funeral of the late Mr. John Hawe Mason, J.P., took place on Friday afternoon, and abundant evidence was afforded of the widespread respect entertained throughout the town for the deceased gentleman. The flag was hoisted half-mast at the Town Hall, and all along the route of the procession there were the customary signs of mourning. The first part of the service was conducted in the Wesleyan Church, where for over sixty years the deceased had been a worshipper. As the congregation were assembling the organist (Mr. S.J. Lee Vincent) played “O rest in the Lord”.


The body, enclosed in a coffin covered with beautiful wreaths was conveyed from The Firs, Oxford-road, in a Washington car, and was met at the entrance gates by Rev. F. Hunter (Superintendent minister of the Newbury Circuit, Rev. E.P.Lowry (military chaplain) and Rev. T. H. Lomas, who preceded it into the church, which was filled by a sympathetic congregation. The service opened with the singing of the hymn “Give me the wings of faith to rise” followed by the reading of Psalm xc, and the lesson from Corinthians 1 xv 20-58 by Mr. Hunter. [etc]
