The death of Mr. Stephen North, which took place on April 15th in his 70th year, has removed an old townsman. As a boy of thirteen, he started as an office boy with Messrs. Alexander Davis and Palmer, Auctioneers, of the Market Place. Changes occurred in the proprietorial personnel, but North remained on the staff. In 1889, he was appointed cashier and Chief Clerk, which position of trust and confidence he held until 1918, when he retired from the service of Messrs. Dreweatt, Watson and Barton, the then proprietors of the firm. He had then put in 56 years of faithful and zealous service.

Mr. North was an active member of the Wesleyan body, and until sixty years of age was a local preacher, also holding several local and circuit offices.

The funeral took place at the Newtown-road Cemetery on Friday, the funeral party walking across from St. Faith's, Priory-road. The service was conducted by the Rev. T.J. Price (Superintendent of the Newbury Wesleyan Circuit),who gave an appreciative address in the Cemetery Chapel, testifying to the long and zealous services rendered by the deceased in the church.
