General and sincere sympathy has been expressed with Mr. Walter Henry Bell, architect of the Market Place, in the loss of his wife, after a prolonged illness. The deceased lady was of a kindly and gentle disposition, and enjoyed the affection of a large circle of friends. She sustained a severe shock by the death of her youngest daughter, Miss Elsie Bell, under tragic circumstances, eighteen months ago. She suffered from a distressing malady, but maintained throughout a cheery spirit to the end.


The funeral took place on Saturday afternoon, at Newbury Cemetery. The body, enclosed in a French polished coffin, with solid brass mountings, having solid breastplate engraved

“Rosa Bell

Died December 2nd 1914”


was placed in an open car, followed by a carriage containing Mr. Walter H. Bell, (husband), Mr. Fritz Bell (son), Mr. John Bell (brother-in-law), and Mr. W.H. Gore, and on arrival at the Cemetery, was met by several friends, among whom we noticed Mrs. H. Hollands, Mrs. Horace Cox, Mr. Hedley Griffin, Mr. Thomas Stillman, and others.


The floral tributes of affection and esteem were very numerous, the car being literally covered outside and in. Wreaths, crosses and flowers, were received from the following: “In everlasting remembrance, from her affectionate Husband.” “To dear mother, with love, from Dorothy and Fritz; Jeff and Ernest, her loving sister, Sarah, and niece; Harry and Lucy, Alan and Roland; Ivy and Willie; John and Annie; Dr Copplestone; Nurse Low; A. Beams; Mr. and Mrs. F. Keep; Mr. and Mrs. J. Stroud (Cold Ash); Mr. and Mrs. Frank Lees (Reading); Mrs. H. Hollands and Alfred; Mr. and Mrs. H. Baker (Reading); Mrs Arthur J. Chivers; K. and D. Kimber; Winnie; M. and N. Matthews; Eva; Mr. and Mrs. J.N. Day and daughters; Ella (Bicester); Alice (Hove); Mr., Mrs. and Miss Rankin; Mr. and Mrs. W.R. Davey and family; Mr. and Mrs. Thos.

Smart; Hedley; the Staff and Students of the Newbury Art School.


The service was impressively and sympathetically conducted by the Rev. John Neville.

The arrangements were carried out by Messrs. Alfred Jackson and Co., Newbury.
