 On Thursday morning last, Mr. Harry John Lucas, whilst in the Market Place was seized with sudden illness.  He was conveyed to his home in Sunnyside, Gloucester-road, but expired shortly afterwards, the cause of death being heart failure.  The Deputy Coroner on being informed, was satisfied with the medical statement, and no inquest was therefore necessary.  The deceased was eldest son of the later Alderman J. H.  Lucas, and carried on the outfitters and hosiery business in Bartholomew-street.  He was one of the earliest Volunteers in Newbury, and continued an enthusiastic interest in the movement until his death.  In the ranks he attained to the position of colour-sergeant.  He was also a prominent Oddfellow, and in his earlier years took an active part in the doings of the town.  The funeral took place on Monday at the Cemetery, Newtown-road, and was conducted by the Rev. O.W. Harford.  

The mourners were Mr. Charles Lucas, brother; Mrs. Lucas, sister-in-law; Mrs. A.C. Banfield, Miss Mary Lucas (daughters); Mrs. Basil Thomas (niece).  Amongst those present were Messrs. E.G. Kimber, E.W. Wentworth, Taplin, Cambridge, Greeves, Edgar Stillman, Langton and others.

 Wreaths were sent by his children, Charles and Edith, George Wintle, Kate, Annie, Florence and Norah, Mr. Taplin and friends.

The coffin was inscribed: “Harry John Lucas, died January 6th 1916, aged 70”.


The funeral arrangements were carried out by Mr. George Wintle, Northbrook-street.


Also -     On 2 November 1878 he and George Clements were in court charged with “For unlawfully encouraging one Isaac Chapman to resist a Police Officer whilst in the spectrum of his business” and both were acquitted.
